"The sun was rising on a crisp, clear autumn morning as, 1500 feet above the rooftops of London, Ensign Lloyd sat attentively in the basket of his surveillance balloon, tethered near the banks of the Thames. He was about to pour himself a cup of tea from his flask when the telegraph beeped into life...
He began to transmit his reply when he realized his telegraph line had gone dead -- severed somehow at the mooring. He had only a moment to contemplate how to relay his message when a shudder and jerk shook his surveillance balloon and he jolted skyward. he watched the rooftops of the capital city of the entire empire receding below him ans he climbed rapidly skyward, lifted forcibly by the helium expander. Trying not to panic and remembering his training, he strapped on his altitude mask and hooked up the intake valve to the respirator chamber.
Heaven help me, he thought, as the balloon was gripped by the morning wind, dragging him toward the southwest coast and the great expanse of ocean that lay beyond."
--Thomas Willeford, "Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos: A Maker's Guide to Creating Modern artifacts

Now you can also traverse the Aether aboard the "Montgolfier IV" of Her Majesty's Geographical Positioning Service! Hang it anywhere! A tree! Your car! Make them into earrings! The choice is yours!

5.5 inches tall, made of lightweight, laser cut acrylic. "Taking over the world" was put on hold to make these little beauties!

Because a number of the manufacturing processes rely on manual skills, each piece has its own individuality and slight variations in color may occur. None of these, however, alter the overall quality or performance of the product.
