VINTAGE ESTATE VERTICAL TOY STEAM ENGINE? STOVE? CONTRAPTION? -'JB-525'

From a vintage estate, we are offering fascinating metal toy.....we have no history on this toy.....Not being professionals, anything we cannot identify, we call 'contraptions', but after ebay research, it appears to be a standing steam engine/boiler. Signed, "JB-525" on the side base of underside. Weighs almost 1 1/2 #. The lower bar on back side still can cause the moving part to turn although needs oiling/cleaning...the handle that turns is in only about an inch long and appears that rest has broken off (See photo #3...center, near holes The base has some maroon/red accents and is a heavier metal than the uppert engine/boiler/stove section. It is very dark compared to others we viewed, so wonder if it had been in fire, but no soot/ash residue has come off on our hands. Please feel free to email with questions or mentoring on this item... Measures approx. 8 1/4" tall x 3 5/8" at widest of base Selling 'As is' because we do not know condition or what parts are missing/etc....please magnify photos to observe all areas We do not polish or clean antique or vintage items....we leave that up to the professionals or the buyers. Gift box included. We are willing to reduce shipping when you buy more than one auction...the only exception would be if both auction are china/porcelain/glass items.

Thank you for viewing, and may the gentle
