This is a fresh find from Brimfield. I bought several items from this dealer and they were all 100% house clean-out fresh! I do not know steam engines, but I knew immediately that this was a neat early example with that wood boiler. The steam engine measures right about 12 inches long from the front of the boiler to the back of the fly wheel.
It stands 7 1/2 inches tall just to the top of the fly wheel, not including the tubing with the brass switch fittings. It measures about 5 1/4 inches wide. It is 100% untouched and uncleaned... Just the way it came out of the estate!
It does turn freely yet feels that there is still compression. It should clean up beautifully!!! The item "ANTIQUE L-S STEAM ENGINE EARLY WOOD BOILER CAST IRON MODEL TOY TOOL UNUSUAL RARE" is in sale since Friday, July 24, 2015. This item is in the category "Business & Industrial\Light Equipment & Tools\Stationary Engines\Engines".
The seller is "hat-trick" and is located in Harlan, Iowa. This item can be shipped to United States.
