One of the least liked and heaviest jobs o f the Sailing Age was for the sailor to row out the ship’s anchor and place it in position. Sometimes several anchors were needed to make for a safe and secure berth. Our rowing sailor seems to carry a light load; at least he makes that impression. Hand made and hand painted in sheet metal. The anchor line is made of twisted metal wire.

Toys inspired by and demonstrating aspects of science were popular in Victorian times. People loved toys that did the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity: They all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Balance toys were originally called skyhooks, effortless counter-weighted toys that could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table and set in motion to everybody's delight and amazement.
