Antique German Carette Hot Air Steam Engine, Missing Wooden Base. This engine originally came mounted on a wooden base. The flywheel has a little wiggle and one of the uprights holding up the shaft for the flywheel has a crack (between the screw and the upright) a drop of super glue might help.
It was most likely manufactured in the early 1900's in Germany. I couldn't test it for function. The paint that is on it is original. The base is 2 5/8" wide & 5 1/8" long and the overall length is 7.
