Authentic Models TM040 Details
Authentic Models Pirate Sky Hook

Pirates ruled the waves in early history. A lot of early folk art originates from coastal cities. Ports were usually crowded with pubs and inns, since most passenger and merchandise traffic took place over water. Many sailors, with plenty of time on their hands, were active amateur artists.

It's interesting to reflect on the nature of folk art. Developed mainly for use in modest homes, old pieces are now fetching astronomical prices. Who knows what these balance toys will fetch a hundred years from now?

Nautical themes are everywhere in folk art; trade signs, figure heads, weather vanes and whimsical whirligigs, sailors and fishermen wanted to know from which direction the wind was blowing. The tradition of balance toys going back to an obscure little sailor's pub, it makes sense that we add a fearless pirate to rather unique collection.
