We believe this is Bing, from around 1900. The base is cast iron and the upper portion is tin with a tin burner. The flywheel and piston turn freely.
The handle on the steam whistle on top turns freely. Looks like it is missing the smokestack. Stands 8 3/4" high by 3 1/2" x3 1/2 at the base.
We would be happy to provide additional pictures upon request. Ironage is pleased to offer a very wide range of antiques and interesting items. We do the best that we can with pictures and the descriptions but are not experts.
