Helmsman

The sailor of Authentic Models Helmsman Balance Toy steers his ships' movement from his little stand in a wonderful replica of a helmsman at sea. This Balance Toy would make a lovely addition as a piece of decor in a bathroom, beach house or a nautical-inspired interior.

Detailed Construction

Cut by hand using original templates, this balance toy is made from a recycled metal sheet. It has been hand painted in great detail and finished with a rich aged patina. It includes a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand.

Balance Toys

Gadgets inspired by science were popular in the Victorian period. People 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 and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Balance toys became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move, to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
