This Fly Fisherman Balance Toy is in perpetual movement. Whatever the moment, one thing is certain, this catch will never happen nor will the monster fish catch his smaller siblings! Things are in balance here, and seemingly in perpetual movement. This is a toy that would make a wonderfully whimsical present.
Cut by hand 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 became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move, to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
