Neat old antique tin toy wind-up engine with original paint. This was made by a company that once produced other versions & sizes of early tin wind-up toys. This company never seemed to put names on their engines. This steam engine toy also has the original vertical belt drive governor on it.
This toy engine was made a long time ago & it has old thick original paint on it. Its an early model & Id guess it was made around 1895 to 1910. No history came with the engine; its just been sitting on a shelf for the last 50 years.
Overall its in good shape with nice original paint but the top of the crank guard has a slight bend in it right before it joins to the top of the cylinder. This would be an easy fix. Also the wind-up mechanism is all there but is not working & will need messed with. Engine stands about 4-1/2 tall to the top of the governor & has a 2-3/4 diameter flywheel.
