I can't remember the name of it, don't think it was Gaggia, but I've seen pix of a number of them on Home Barista in the Lever Machine Gallery.  Shouldn't take too much browsing to locate it.  Before you buy an antique like this, make sure you can find parts if you plan to use it.  Check with Orphanespresso.

Does that, um, throne thing serve a purpose or is it some form of industrial art?  

It almost looks like you could place a drip brew carafe there...?

Saw an Astoria like this once at an auction.  Been a while ago, but worth a look.
