A Rare Butterfly

Shop Notes 11 February 2019 | Comments Off on A Rare Butterfly

Some pinball machines are pretty. And some pinball machines are beautiful. Like this one. We were happy to stare upon its sweet countenance for a time, but now this rare Zacarria Farfalla is on its way to its new home. Check it out!

The Italian company Zaccaria came out with Farfalla in 1983, and produced nearly 3,000 games. (IPDB)

The company was around for more than a dozen years and produced some fifty games, including Devil Riders and its own Time Machine.

Farfalla (Italian for butterfly) is known for its stunning, rainbow-hued playfield artwork and its backglass.

We gave this game a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be tumbled, buffed, washed, polished, or otherwise cleaned. We also threw on a pair of cool powdercoated legs.

The playfield cleaned up beautifully, and looked even better with a few custom touches, including translucent flipper bats, matching Super Bands, and more.

Check out the playfield detail on this game. Amazing!

Enjoy the game, Dave. We’ll sure miss it!
