    A rare and perfectly detailed live steam scale model of a rotative vertical reciprocating beam engine with James Watt type parallel motion linkage. This hand-built engine has been made from burnished steel, cast iron and bronze, which has developed a good patina from over a century of enjoyment. It also retains its original paint and comes with its original carrying case. The single Mahogany clad double action, low pressure cylinder has a stroke of 2 5/8 inches and a bore of 1 1/8 of an inch, the piston produces power on both the upward and downward strokes. The fly wheel measures 11 inches in diameter and the beam, pivoting on a single bronze column, measures 8 1/4 inches. This engine was built between 1865 and 1870, most probably as an apprentice piece, or for demonstrating the workings of this type of engine. It is mounted on a Mahogany plinth with a brass plate with the inscription “MADE BY ROBERT GILCHRIST OF BERWICK ON TWEED 1865 1870”

    English, circa 1870.

    Scottish engineer, James Watt invented His parallel motion mechanical linkage for the double acting Watt steam engine in 1784. In a letter to his son written in 1808 James Watt wrote “I am more proud of the parallel motion than of any other invention I have ever made”. Watts' new double acting engines were powered by steam on both the upward and downward strokes, along with his parallel motion, these engines were much more efficient than previous engines built by Thomas Newcomen and Watt.

    A fine late 19th century framed oil on canvas by Joseph Horlor (British, 1809-1887). The pastoral scene depicts fishfolk with their boats moored and their meagre catch in wicker baskets. They work under the looming ruin of a castle, a romantic vision of crumbling turrets built in to the rocky crag. In the distance there is a glimpse of a village nestled in the trees, completing the vision of a pastoral idyll. Scenes of this type were immensely popular in 19th century Britain, as they both conveyed the romance of the British countryside and the moral virtue of manual labour. This scene was possibly set in Wales, where Horlor found the landscape immensely inspiring .

    Signed and dated 1836. Framed in 19th century gilt frame. In fine condition, professionally relined recently.

    Notes: Not a great deal is known about Joseph Horlor, but he exhibited from 1834-1866 at the British Institute and Suffolk Street (Later to become the Royal Society of British Artists) in London. He lived in Bristol and Bath and specialised in landscapes, coastal scenes and seascape subjects, mainly painting in Wales, Devon and Cornwall. There are 8 paintings by Horlor in the British National Art Collection, predominantly in Bristol.
