This is a very cool Vintage to Antique Weeden Toy Steam Engine. So meticulous in detail it looks like a Salesman Sample. But it is in fact a Toy of a "By Gone" era. The details, are incredible. This toy is definitely not in functional condition, but as a sculptural miniature piece, it is fantastic. This Antique Toy Steam Engine was made by the Weeden Toy Company from New Bedford, Massachusetts. I found this online:
"Weeden Manufacturing was a toy company best known for producing model steam engines and electric motors. They started making toy steam engines in October 1884 to sell via Magazine, and went on to make 100 different styles. Weeden made its own tooling for all the engines they made. From 1890 to 1912 Weeden made a steam powered toy train. In the 1920s Weeden ventured into children's banks and electric stoves. In 1942 they were purchased by National Playthings, the last steam engine being made 10 years later."
This piece is in excellent vintage to antique condition with definite signs of age and wear, as well it is missing a few parts and elements. Not intended for "play". Please Zoom the photos to appreciate all the details, as well as to best understand overall condition.
Piece measures 5.75" x 5.75" x 5.75"
