1891 Beam Engine
Single Cylinder Inverted Vertical.
A very well made Victorian miniature beam engine with Watt parallel motion and 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ cylinder, measuring 16″ long x 20″ High.
Central column etched with makers names James McBean and Ian Ross Matheson, 1891.
This is a water pumping beam engine on columned cast iron frame with gilded urn detailing.
This rare antique model is very nicely detailed, although flywheel, governor and other parts missing, and needing some sensitive restoration.
Generally in nice, untouched condition.
