RARE 1920's WEEDEN #123 VERTICAL LIVE STEAM ENGINE TOY:
$109

Wonderful, ca1920's Weeden #123, Live Upright Steam Engine Toy. This early, working Steam Engine measures approx. 7 1/2" tall to the top of its original, whistle and 7 3/4" by 3 7/8" diameter at the base. The Toy is made of brass, die cast metal and tin. We have had some trouble identifying the Toy Steam Engine offered here but believe that it is an early version of the Weeden #123.


We are not experts on Steam Engine Toys but we were able to discover the following about the company from steamtoy.com: "The Weeden Manufacturing Company was started by William N. Weeden in the 1880s in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The company first produced oil lamp burners and tin plate household items. Through his dealings he came to meet the owner of the "Youth's Companion" magazine where they struck up a deal to produce toy steam engines to give away as premiums for his magazine. The engine that Weeden produced was the Weeden No.1 which was priced at $1.00 and held a patent date of May 19, 1885, and manufactured up to 1905. Other products he made were comb cases, match safes and the Weeden Magic Lantern." In the 1890's the Weeden Company expanded their line of steam engines featuring cast iron bases, large brass boiler, nickel plating and more realistic looking steam engines.".


The Toy Steam Engine offered here is what we believe to be a Weeden #123 which was produced from 1913 and 1940. The Toy Steam Engine is not marked by the manufacturer and the materials, surfaces and manufacture lead us to believe that it is an early example of the Model #123.


We have not tested this early 20th century, live steam engine but it appears that it is in working order although it lacks the original burner and the original, decorative smokestack. The tank appears sound and sealed. Please see the scans below for a good indication of the condition of this rare and early Toy Steam Engine.


A rare and very desirable, Weeden #123, Upright / Vertical Live Steam Engine Toy and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges and the "Detailed Seller Rating" Star System:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.

We have NEVER requested response from our customers as we were taught that "fishing for compliments" was impolite but the new Detailed Rating System has put us in a rather tight spot. Most buyers are unaware that bases a monthly fee discount on a Seller's "Star" rating. A monthly average of "4.6 Stars" (in any one of the four "Star" categories) costs us approximately $400 in additional Fees - that's $400 above what we would pay if we had a "4.8 Star" average in all 4 "Star" categories!! As a consequence we hope you do not find us rude to ask that if you are happy with our items, our service, and our packing & shipping please be sure to use the "Star" rating system and remember that a "5 Star" rating is the only way we can qualify for 's fee reduction program. ,
