The Authentic Models Airplane Balance Toy is a quinessential 'boy's toy' and would make a lovely gift for a vintage flying or aviation enthusiast.
Handcut using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled tin sheet. It has been hand painted in great detail and finished with a rich wax and aged patina. It includes a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand.
Gadgets inspired by science were popular in the 19th century. The Victorians loved demonstrations of the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity etc, all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast due to the industrial revolution. Balance toys were popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
