Just like with great vintage piece we like it a lot when a functional form has been turned into a thing of beauty. This object is purely functional in that it is made to show in a very clear way how a steam engine works. These pieces would be used in Germany mainly. Instructional pieces for school, factories etc. Right in line with the German tradition of high end engineering.
The fact that this instructional object is also very pleasing on the eye is what keeps us collecting them. We have another model which fits the bill just as well and shows us the workings of a two stroke engine. So cool...
