Amazing Scratch Built Locomotives

We are proud to offer one of the best examples of English early 20th Century scratch built folk art examples. Modelled on an English steam locomotive this item has been wonderfully constructed using metal sheets and other found engineering objects of sorts. With all its original paint still intact, the proportions are what makes this model so special and due to its size of 3 feet across, a complete one of a kind. The item was created as a model and does not move, the inside of the engine room is quite amazing with a coal hatch that opens and closes, control leavers and several other accessories in place. We believe the doors and windows would have originally open and closed however due to its age rust forming these functions are no longer. This item was recently uncovered in a disused train service station in Swindon. Without doubt this is one of the best items we have had the privilege to uncover, you will never find another like it……….

Size in inches approx.: H 16” x W 37” x D 11”
Origin: United Kingdom
Date: Early 20th Century
Material: Metal
Weight: 25KG

Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Obvious age is shown in loss of paint, chips, scratches and fading of surface in places. Rust is present as show in the photos provided especially across exposed paint less areas. The rod to the front of the train engine is not joined to the body and is loss, this does not affect the decorative appeal of this item. A very heavy object weighing roughly 25kg. Its strongly suggested to review all the photos provided carefully and propose any questions where details are unclear before a purchase is made.
