Default Nice Model Steam Boiler What is It?

Aquired this model steam boiler along with the Doll 360 steam engine. It appears to be a very well built 5 water tube boiler. Does anybody have a clue as to its manufacturer? Perhaps it was a kit of some sort

It appears to be an older Stuart 500 boiler.
Be careful of the asbestos packing around the fire box.

I figured that that the insulation material was asbestos, and I plan on replacing that. Thanks for the reply!

After a little more research, it appears the measurements of this boiler ( 8 1/2 inches long and 3 3/8 inches diameter don't quite match the dimensions of a 500, 501 or 504 Stuart model boiler

May be a Steven's Dockyard boiler.

That is a Bassett-Lowke boiler. Similar to a Stuart babcock type.
