    There it is! Anxious to see what is paid for

    Nach ein paar Jahren blätterte die Farbe ab.
    Ich war bisher immer der Meinung Holz arbeitet,
    aber dann fing der Spritzguss an zu reißen oder sich zu verformen.
    After a few years the paint started to peel of. I thought only wood is working, but here the pewter started to tear and to deform.

    Thanks Egon

    Looks like this Itala is a victim of the so-called "zinc pest", a corrosion process for die-cast, that comes from bad alloys and is irreversible. Another cause might be wrong storage with changing temperature, which means condensed water oxiding the cast metal. RIP Itala.

    The majority of the 350 pcs series is destroyed by this zinc pest.

    There must be a way to restore the metal, dip it in something that penetrates the metal and hardens, a job for NASA prehaps.

    You can keep an eye on the sellers feedback and see if it pops up there and who bought it, he maby sell it again.
    I have a pair I'm watching in saved sellers.

    I guess that it was sold directly (outside Ebay) as the auction was ended early by the seller !!
