STUART Steam Plant
A water cooled example of an open crank I.C. engine, made c1904 by the British Engineering and Electrical Company of Leek, Staffs.
Approx 1/3 HP
With later chain driven magneto (replacing the hot tube ignition), and fitted with twin S-spoked flywheels.
Mounted on a 2 wheel trolley inscibed “B E & E”.
A rare survivor.
This highly elegant beam engine dates from the mid 19th Century and is from the well known Jonathan Minns collection.
Very good detail work including fluted columns.
Around 1 HP, with approx 3″ x 6″ inverted vertical cylinder. Complete with governor and pumps.
Hand made for display, this is a very nicely made miniature steam plant dating from circa 1900. Comprises a vertical rivetted copper boiler (coal/wood fired) and horizontal single cylinder steam engine, both mounted on a brass and wood base.
In very nice original condition, and a handsome display object.
