A large painted cast metal paperweight of the streamlined LMS Coronation locomotive, running number 6220.

The paperweight appears to be "gauge 0"-sized. It would have been a special item, probably produced for a railway director or boardroom, and has the locomotive's distinctive lining and other markings.

The locomotive appears almost black due to the aging of the varnish.
