The Mad Hatter Balance Toy by Authentic Models is part of a whimsical collection of five main characters from Lewis Carroll’s famous children’s book, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. Colourful and fun, the character designs are adapted to fit a contemporary colour palette, while remaining recognizable as Carroll’s classic creations. Functioning replicas of 18th and 19th century originals, this toy is a wonderful collector's item and piece of decor.
Handcut using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled metal and tin sheet. It has been hand painted with careful attention to detail and finished with a rich wax and aged patina. It includes a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand. It is a 3-dimensional, limited edition toy that is difficult to come by, and a serial number and tag of authenticity is included in the shipping.
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 the industrial revolution was changing society. Balance toys and their like became popular in such a time.
