Pleezon espresso machine : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread


I own a Pleezon espresso machine from the l950s or earlier. It is octagonal shaped,with a piston mechanism. I was told it was designed by Gio Ponti, but who knows. The exterior is in excellent shape. It is not working. I believe it is 110 volt. I'd like to get it repaired if possible. Thomas Cara of San Francisco said they did not have the parts. My guess is that is is the heating element. Any suggestions? To me it is a rare work of art - machine age looking. It is not for sale. I live in L.A. Thanks.
