Description

"Suddenly the wind ceased. The air seemed motionless around us. We were off, going at the speed of the air-current in which we now lived and moved. Indeed, for us there was no more wind; and this is the first great fact of spherical ballooning. Infinitely gentle is this unfelt motion forward and upward. The illusion is complete: it seems not to be the balloon that moves, but the earth that sinks down and away…"

— Alberto Santos-Dumont, My Air-Ships, 1904.

----------

Total length (minus hook) = 10 inches

Globe diameter = 6 inches

Globe circumference = 16.5 inches

-The Silver Lace balloon features a crystal-blue crackled glass globe suspended within an antique silver-colored filigree and chain "cage", accented with shiny silver chain. The basket is pewter, accented with both shiny and antique silver chain as well as blue glass teardrop beads.

-Each of our unique balloons is handcrafted from a combination of upcycled/found objects and new components.

-Build time varies depending upon complexity of design, but on average each piece takes at least 18 hours to complete.

-Each balloon comes with a cold-worked copper hook for use in hanging.
