We researched the original helium balloons, with their characteristic rattan baskets, in the Museum of Flight in Paris and the German Science Museum in Munich. Our miniatures, very similar to the scale-models displayed in those museums, are assembled with paper-mache spheres covered in striped simulated fabric. The rattan baskets hang from hand knotted netting, attached with toggles for easy assembly. This balloon is designed to be hung.
