Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
The Cheshire Cat Balance Toy is part of a whimsical collection of the five main characters from Lewis Carroll’s famous Victorian children’s book. Colourful and fun, Authentic Models character designs are adapted to fit a contemporary colour palette, while remaining recognizable as Carroll’s classic creations. Functioning replicas of 18th and 19th century originals, this is a wonderful toy that can also be used as an interesting piece of home decor.
Handcut using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled metal and tin sheet. It has been hand painted with meticulous attention to detail and finished with an 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. The Victorians 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 people's way of life. Balance toys and their like became popular in such a time.
