    A very decorative maiolica vase hand painted with a Roman battle scene to the bulbous body. The statement handles have been modelled into winged putti grotesques, much like a figurehead on the bow of a ship. Signed by the renowned Cantagalli workshop in Florence. Italian, late 19th century.

    Ulisse Cantagalli was born into a family of potters in Florence. He was obsessed with replicating the fine tin glazed maiolica of the Italian Renaissance, and when he took over the family's factory in Florence he began to specialise in producing reproductions of these exquisite pieces, and also produced his own designs in this style.

    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.

It was the world's first animal welfare charity. and was originally called the SPCA - Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Royal patronage followed in 1837 and Queen Victoria gave permission to add the royal R in 1840, making it the RSPCA as it is known worldwide today.
