A Gift from the Wife
« on: July 08, 2024, 07:59:56 pm »
My wife gave me her old curio cabinet (she has a new one). It was damaged when our home flooded to a depth of 4-1/2 feet in 2016, and we finally got around to cleaning and restoring it. Eight years on and there are still a few things left to restore. This cabinet does work well for displaying a few steam toys.

Happy steaming!

That is positively lovely!

It appears that she also allowed you some prime space to place that display cabinet so that your collection is very visible.

Nice Lady, that wife of yours. Lucky fellow you are!!!

Now fill it up so you get the new one and she can get a newer one!!!  ebay is great for cheap curios because they dont ship well
Love steam engines, especially older German made.  Love the more clockwork style.  Addicted to this stuff!
