Mermaids

In ancient sailor’s lore mermaids were reputed to sing so beguilingly that they lured many a spellbound sailor into the deep. Although the mermaids are in their natural element, this posed a problem to the average sailor since most of them didn’t master the art of swimming. The mermaid on this Authentic Models Mermaid Balance Toy mounts her dolphin steed rather than luring sailors! 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 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 hugely popular in the Victorian period. People enjoyed watching demonstrations of the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity etc, all seemed magical in an era when society was experiencing rapid change and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Balance toys became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move and to be fascinating to the eye.
