This Fisherman Balance Toy is in perpetual movement. Whatever the moment, one thing is certain, this catch will never happen! Things are in balance here, and seemingly in perpetual movement. The toy captures the image of the fisherman perched on a boulder watching his line, contemplating lures for trout, steelhead, and salmon, and it would make a lovely gift for an avid fisherman!
Cut using original templates, this toy is handmade from a recycled metal sheet. It has been hand painted in great detail and carefully 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, such as optical illusions. Balance toys became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move, to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
