Perpetual Movement

A beautiful Whale Balance Toy by Authentic Models. Nearly hunted to extinction, these huge ocean mammals are slowly recuperating from having been chased for centuries for their oil and meat. Whales still trek thousands of miles across the oceans between feeding grounds and areas where they mate and give birth. This Whale Balance Toy is in perpetual movement, and is truly beautiful.

Detailed Construction

Cut by hand using original templates, this toy is made from a recycled tin sheet. It has been hand painted in great detail and finished with a rich wax and aged patina. It includes a counterweight calibrated to create swing and a matching metal stand.

Balance Toys

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.
