Working Steam Engine

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a nice size tabletop steam engine. It measures over two foot long. What I like best about it is the table it mounts to. The wood has an amazing patina and the pedestal legs and arms are cast iron. We found this on in Paris 20 years ago.
