Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
The Queen of Heart Balance Toy is part of Authentic Models whimsical collection of five main characters from Lewis Carroll’s famous Victorian children’s book. Colourful, quirky and fun, Authentic Models character designs are adapted to fit a contemporary colour palette, while remaining recognisable as Carroll’s classic creations.
Handcut using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled metal sheet. It has been hand painted with meticulous 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. A serial number and a tag of authenticity are 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.
