1920s Vertical Steam Engine Dampfmaschine 4107/6.5 w/Burner. 1920s vertical steam engine/dampfmaschine #4107/6.5 manufactured by Marklin/Maerklin/Gebrüder Maerklin of Goppingen, Germany.
We did not fire this engine up, but the pistons and the flywheel spin as expected and operate smoothly by hand. The burner door is present, attached, and operates as it should. The oft lost water level glass gauge is intact.
The top wooden handle to the valve is original. The front wooden handle has broken off, but is still included and able to be repaired. Our example of this Maerklin/Gebrüder Maerklin live vertical steam engine is in excellent all original condition with no breaks (other than the wooden handle), restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece shows the usual patina, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play.
It is approximately 5 L x 5 W (at the base) and 12 ½ H. This would be a great and impressive addition to any collection. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.A brief history of Gebruder Maerklin (or Marklin) of Goppingen, Germany. And his wife, Caroline Märklin.
