Royal Aero Model Helium Balloon Mobile. Capture the beauty and magnificence of hot air balloon flight with this museum quality Hot Air Balloon. The first gas balloon made its flight in Paris in August 1783. Since then balloons have traveled the skies, often in unintended directions, but that was part of the adventure and appeal as well. Gliding soundlessly and effortlessly, as if in a world of their own, helium balloons have fired imaginations and appealed to a sense of romanticism.
The balloon sphere has hand applied bands of colors. The rattan basket, hand knotted netting, sandbags and a flag adding to the incredible detail of the model. Lightweight and easy to hang, this piece is sure to add that special touch to your decor. Makes the perfect gift for the young and young at heart. Please note: This model does not float on its own. We suggest hanging it with clear fishing wire.
