Pirate

The Authentic Models Pirate Balance Toy has plenty of character and would add interest to a beach house or any sailing or nautical-inspired interior. This Pirate will row and row and row, once set on his voyage. Treasure Islands beckon from beyond the surf…

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 waxed patina. It comes with a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand. The heavy metal wire connecting the counter weight to the dinghy can be bent somewhat to correct the proper swing.

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. This balance toy has an articulated pirate, oars and parrot moving in unison whilst the dinghy is set in motion and rocks back and forth.
