Victorian Pirate Balancing Skyhook


Out of stock


sold out!
Inspired by toys of the past, this reproduction full metal figure seems to magically come to life with moving arms and accessories when rocked on its display stand. Toys demonstrating aspects of science were popular in Victorian times. Balance toys, originally called skyhooks, were simple counter-weighted toys which could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table and set in motion to everybody's delight and amazement. Beautifully painted and detailed, the pirate measures 17-3/4".
