Inspired by Karl May's American Wild West, Cowboys and Indians stories, this Great Plains Balance Toy is part of a wonderful collection of 18th and 19th century replica toys by Authentic Models. It is ideally paired with the Rodeo Balance Toy.
Hand made from a sheet of recycled metal and tin, then carefully hand painted in layers over three days, this three-dimensional balance toy is a limited edition that is difficult to come by. It ships with a serial number and tag of authenticity.
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. They would place skyhooks on a shelf and set it in motion to everyone's amazement.
