This exhibit was on display between November 2012 and early 2013

A small 5 1/2-inch cast white-metal paperweight of the streamlined LMS Coronation 6220 locomotive on a metal plinth, with its original box, by Bassett-Lowke for LMS.

As this is a promotional piece, the paperweight and its box don't carry any details of the manufacturer.

The paperweight is probably made from either plated pewter or "Britannia metal", and the locomotive and tender are cast separately from the base, and screwed together, which allows for finer detailing in the wheels and underside of the train.

The cast plinth has a section of track incorporated into its upper surface, and has slanted sides. the side of the plinth reads STREAMLINE ENGINE "CORONATION", and the front of the plinth reads "LMS".

Box

The box is turquoise-blue with a wide-lipped lid, and a white paper label covering most of the top surface. It has a red printing, including a red inset double-border, and the words,

LONDON MIDLAND AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY
STREAMLINE LOCOMOTIVE
"CORONATION" No. 6220
