Do read the description thoroughly, view each photograph with care and please take note of the measurements, photographs can be deceiving making items appear larger or smaller than they actually are including sight deviations in colour due to monitor settings and light. A LARGE ANTIQUE WOODEN MODEL AEROPLANE AIRPLANE AIRCRAFT CIGARETTE ROLLING MACHINE' SHORT STERLING' BOMBER WORLD WAR TWO , HAND MADE , FOLK ART , TRENCH ART , RARE. An extremely interesting and absolutely beautifully constructed cigarette rolling machine depicting what is believed to be an RAF four engine' Short Sterling' aircraft which was brought into service in World War Two but was only in service for quite a short period when the Lancaster Bomber aircrafts took over.

The plane is completely handmade and crafted and is of a solid wood construction , including the cigarette rolling machine. The plane most likely having been made by an engineer , mechanic, pilot , war veteran or similar such person with a knowledge of these planes during the 1939 - 1945 second World War era.

The aeroplane is an amazing model and is a stunning piece of art and display just as it is but the person that built the plane also choose to make the model useful, to serve a purpose and as a novelty item making it to use as a cigarette rolling machine. The top of the cockpit lifts up to reveal the rolling machine , where it appears the paper and then the tobacco would be placed, close the lid, turn the tails point, the cigarette is then rolled and then drops out from underneath the fuselage. No idea how the paper would be wetted to make it stick together though. The plane stands on it's original beautifully shaped and crafted stand which shows the plane off effectively and on which the plane can be fully spun round or positioned differently as desired and from which it can be removed. The craftsmanship is outstanding with inlaid identification markings and windows cleverly done with different woods and laid grains of the wood being placed in different directions.

The windows of the cockpit are also extremely cleverly carved to give the appearance of reflective glass. The plane is supremely tactile to the touch and to handle and is a beautiful colour with a lovely patina. The plane has suffered some damage over the years commensurate with age and use over the years although it still looks superb as it is but if desired it shouldn't be difficult to repair. Apart from one it has lost it's engine propellers (which do fully turn), fortunately with one remaining one this could be used as a template to make replacements.

There may have been a tiny prong, stick or similar to the back of the rounded top on the lid as there appears to have been something broken here, there is a wheel missing to the undercarriage of the nose, two tiny dents on the planes nose and there is a hardly noticeable but there , fine tight hairline crack to the front of the cockpit and other than the above mentioned this gorgeous plane is in excellent condition with no other damage, chips, cracks or restoration and with the many pictures showing it's condition where it can be judged on it's own merit, so please do enlarge and check these out carefully if it is of interest. Measures ; (52cm) 20.1/2" inches long x (58.5cm) 23 " inches across / wingspan x (23.1cm) 9.1/8 inches high / highest point The cigarette rolling machine is untried but all the mechanics appear to be working as they should.
