The Signal Sailor Balance Toy by Authentic Models is a functioning replica of 18th and 19th century balance toys. This Balance Toy would make a lovely addition as a piece of decor in a bathroom, beach house or a nautical-inspired interior.
Handcut from a sheet of tin, then carefully hand painted in layers over three days; these three-dimensional balance toys are hard to come by. Each comes with a serial number and tag of authenticity. These are limited editions which will no doubt become highly sort after and collector's items.
Gadgets inspired by science 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. They would place skyhooks on a shelf or the rim of a table and set it in motion to everyone's amazement.
