This has a total height of 11. All of the handles and levers appear to be in good working condition. This also still has a oil candle for the interior of the engine (do not know if this has original soldering on it). There are a few dents on the venting near the middle of the engine, otherwise this appears to be in very good antique condition. One of the coolest parts of this find for me is the actual original box.
It is in VERY good condition considering the age of the item. The cardboard is thick and has held up pretty well. There are no significant rips or damage. It still has all of the original staples holding the cardboard together. On one side of the box this has No 206/2 on a light blue paper, along with a triangular red and white sticker which says Engine Made in Germany and features a partial serial number.
Both the side sticker have some minor damage. The main sticker on the top of the box is also in very good condition.Add this amazing set to your vintage steam engine collection! We leave feedback for all of our sales and ask that you please do the same for us as well.
