Does it get any more steampunk than this steam powered balloon?
We seem to have a steam engine here, with wheels for running along a railway track, and a large balloon above, for aerial adventures! At the back, the poor old stoker is working hard, shovelling coal into the boiler. At the front, in a more relaxed mode, is the pilot. Dressed in leather flying jacket and helmet, with his goggles pushed up onto his head, he is eating an apple and drinking a cup of coffee as he surveys the scene ahead. He must be nice and cosy as well, since he is sitting next to the boiler!

Tim's Amazing Vintage Retro Steampunk Flying Machines
These flying machines were made in the Philippines about 20 years ago. They have been sitting in a warehouse ever since! Made of metal, with ceramic hand painted figures, there is no plastic involved. Hand made by skilled craftsmen, each one will be slightly different. This is a decorative item, and is fairly fragile. It is not a toy, and should not be handled by children.
We are very pleased to have been able to acquire this consignment of flying machines. Quantities of each item are limited, and once sold, there will be no more.
