Just like with great vintage piece we like it a lot when a functional form has been turned into a thing of beauty. This object is purely functional in that it is made to show in a very clear way how a cilinder moves in a two stroke engine. These pieces would be used in German driving school to teach the new driver how the machine he or she is operating actually works. Today we are so far removed from knowing this and see our cars like computers that start with the actual push of a button...
The fact that this instructional object is also very pleasing on the eye is what keeps us collecting them. We have another model which fits the bill just as well and shows us the workings of a steam engine. So cool...
