Antique Ca 1900 Vintage Rossignol Model Live Vertical Steam Engine – Antique Toy For Sale
This is a late 19th/early 20th century antique Rossignol vertical live steam engine marked: “CR Constructeur.
Including its added wooden base, the engine measures about 8 inches high X 5 1/8 inches wide X 4 1/4 inches deep.
The engine is in as-found condition; currently mounted on the wooden base that it once shared with a lamp, see photos.
It is missing the burner that would have gone into the opening in front, and possibly other pieces. The flywheel and piston, when connected, appear to function properly, but the rod connecting them sometimes becomes disengaged. I do not know whether this steam engine is in working condition or not.
This item is old, used, and in as-is, as-found, estate condition. Assume it shows age, has wear, scuffmarks, and other defects. Condition problems, when found, are described & photographed. Some can occur multiple times; the item might have 100+ scratches; not each can be described or photographed. Experienced dealers and collectors understand this. Please examine the photos and email questions before offerding or purchasing.
