This is a very unusual model of a fanning mill or threshing machine toy that likely took hundreds of hours to build! It is fresh from an old engine and mechanical antique collectors estate. It appears to be a fanning mill or grain thresher of sorts. It measures about 8 x 12 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches tall. It has cast iron wheels which are stuck and one is broken as I’ve pointed out. The fan and shaker table are driven by pulleys and moves as they should. It is likely 75-100 years old and possibly more… I just don’t know. It could also be some sort of salesman’s sample. I’ll let you be the judge. The shell is mostly constructed of wood or wood products and it has all old hardware holding it together. It is missing the tongue to pull it and possibly the top if it ever had one. With a little creativity this would be a great addition to your early mechanical toy collection or scale model engine or working display. Old model toys like this are awfully tough to find in the wild anymore so don’t miss your chance on it. It just has a great old look to it! The pictures tell the story. You’ll like it.
