Paolozzi made this item in two pieces which can be interchangeable. The ‘Train Maquette’ comprises of large two pieces in plaster. The lower half consists of wheels, the top half with an engine in a typical Paolozzi style. The two items are separated by a pine wooden block. We believe that Paolozzi deliberately did this so the base and engine sections were interchangeable, making different objects with the pieces. Both pieces have been varnished. The pieces are not signed or have a studio stamp, but was given by Paolozzi to a friend or colleague and formed part of a collection, others of which were signed.
