The sail is up, the waves are roaring and the wind is behind him. A sailors dream! The Authentic Models Sailboat Balance Toy would make a wonderful gift for a sailing enthusiast, or could be used as a piece of decor in a nautical-themed bathroom.
Cut by hand using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled metal sheet. It has been hand painted with meticulous detail and finished with a rich wax and aged patina. It includes a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand.
Gadgets inspired by science and technology were popular in the 19th century. The Victorians 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 due to the industrial revolution. Balance toys became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move, to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
