1901 Doll steam engine 358/2 complete except for burner tray. Nice patina flywheel turns freely with drive pulley on the outside. Tall, all valves turn, and sight glass is perfect. Great collector opportunity for this antique piece of steam history.
Made in Germany distributed to US and UK. Started by Peter Doll and and Issak Sondheim in 1898. Doll had a wide variety of both steam engines and steam toys, and were widely distributed to the US and UK. Julius Waller in Belgium has supplied some much needed information on the fate of the Doll company and family. Curiously enough, the Fleischmann family was also of Jewish origins, but managed to obtain an'Aryan' certificate, whereas Doll did not.From there, it appears that at least some of the Doll family did survive the war, either by leaving the country or possibly hiding in Germany. After the war, Fleischmann maintained the offer to return the assets of the Doll company, but the remaining Doll family accepted a cash settlement instead. Fleischmann did restart production under the Doll name for one year only - 1949. Please check photos as they are part of the description and this is the item you will receive.
