Thanks to the dedicated, ear-to-the-ground urban archeologists here on TC (and to my wife!), I am now the happy owner of said set - pur-chased all the way from Germany. And thanks to the interim possessors Gris Grimly and wife who, as being a part of the creative community in LA, knew of my work and gladly let me have the rare cabinet.

Now I just have to find those B&W photos that show it in situ....

Excellent. Maybe the people that sold the estate might be able to help, or a posting on an estate sale site. Congrats!

.....and a big thanks to tipsy mcstagger for posting this estate sale here, without which, all of this might have gone unnoticed until it was too late.

We're fortunate to have him around !!
