Product Details DETAILS

A King and His Queen. Relegated to the realm of fairy tales now, they loom large in our history. Call them Kings or Emperors, Tsars or Sultans? they once ruled the known world. Their palaces are now tourist highlights. Painted in state, they show contemporary chic; fashion was big even then! Symbolic of power and elevated rank, both figures carry the royal staff. Balancing toys have been around for centuries, teaching children and adults about the laws of physics.

In Victorian times, originally called skyhooks, but also known as balance toys, were first made to demonstrate the workings of counterweights and centrifugal force: simple counter-weighted toys which could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everyones delight and amazement. They soon evolved into fun and whimsical objects, never ceasing to amuse and surprise: people loved to watch toys that were doing things that seemed impossible. In an era where the laws of gravity and electricity seemed magical, balance toys became very popular. Even though we now understand the mystery of the laws of gravity, there is still something fascinating and amusing in watching a balanced object lean and sway.

  • Classic Folk Art - Fits in classic decor, contemporary decor, eclectic!
  • Totally handcrafted from recycled sheet iron metal - Hand forged in the tinsmith way - Painted and hand waxed to a warm and subtle shine
  • Expertly hand painted tole and finished to look like the real antique ones.
  • Of course this is an attractive accent to the kids room, but this is also a decorative and fun object that can fit anywhere! - For the good old western movies lover, or for the horse rider?
  • A curiosity that was very popular during the 18th and 19th Centuries: a functioning skyhook, a classic accessory.
