Item Description

Amazing Scratch Built Locomotives

One of the best examples of English scratch built folk art models we have uncovered. Modelled on an steam locomotive this item has been 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, 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.

 

Size in inches approx.: H 16” x W 37” x D 11”

Origin: United Kingdom

Date: Early 20th Century

Material: Metal

Weight: 25KG
