Mario Della Casa is introducing a collectorâ€™s Freddy the Flute from the classic Krofft TV series “H.R. Pufnstuf”. The American made flute is made from brass and is jewel-encrusted. It comes in a luxurious black display case that can stand vertically. He is the only person licensed by the Kroffts to make these flutes.
Mr. Della Casa has just returned from touring Australia with Barbara Eden to promote his collectable “I Dream of Jeannie” genie bottles and received great enthusiasm from fans when he gave them a sneak peek at Freddy Flute.
The amazing thing was Mr. Della Casa had never seen the “H.R. Pufnstuf” TV Series, but when he saw a picture of Freddy Flute he simply had to make it.
Word is they will be for sale as early as May 2013. Check back for updates.
Mr. Della Casa is well known in the collectables world because he has been making the iconic 1960s â€śI Dream of Jeannieâ€ť genie bottles for the past 30 years. The attention to detail in the genie bottles is amazing. He even decorates the inside of the bottle and you can actually see Jeannie sitting on her sofa.Go Back
