An electrostatic generator is a device used for generating static electricity for use in scientific experiments. In fact, that's actually why it was named an Electrostatic Generator. This particular machine is an earlier version of the ones you find in science museums - you know, the things they use to make children's hair stand on end (which teaches them that science can be fun!)

Of course, since there wasn't enough science to fill a science museum in the 18th century, electrostatic generators were of somewhat limited use - until the invention of the Leyden Jar, which could actually store the electricity they created.
