The machine is in it's original cabinet. Research has shown it to be the Medium V.S. Drop Head Cabinet circa 1905. The machine appears to be the Medium V.S. model. It has "English Make" on the column of the machine.

This live steam boiler and 2 cyl. engine is a very nice collectors item. It is a quality “TOY”. The engine is compound, uniflow type and water pressure tested to 180 psi. The unit was steam tested and is reported to be safe for operation @ 60 psi. It is reported that a patent was applied for sometime between 1850 and 1900?? The unit is typical of those used to operated steam boats of that era. The engine will run on 30 psi steam.
This floor lamp has a frosted glass shade with zigzag design that seems typical of Art Deco. The broad center post is metal with dark brown enamel(?) over it. Brass base with some damage to finish. Its original wiring shorted out and had to be removed, but I do recall it required a huge, 300watt bulb.
THIS IS A FAMILY HEIRLOOM. I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHERE IT CAME FROM AND THE VALUE OF IT. THE ARMOURIES AT THE TOWER OF LONDON TOLD US IN 1982 THAT THIS IS A SCOTTISH HIGHLAND SWORD.
