A lot of early folk art originates from coastal cities. Ports were usually crowded with pubs and inns, since most passenger and merchandise traffic took place over water. Many sailors, with plenty of time on their hands, were active amateur artists. Its interesting to reflect on the nature of folk art. Developed mainly for use in modest homes, old pieces are now fetching astronomical prices. Who knows what our balance toys will fetch a hundred years from now? Nautical themes are everywhere in folk art; trade signs, figure heads, weather vanes and whimsical whirligigs sailors and fishermen wanted to know from which direction the wind was blowing. The tradition of balance toys going back to an obscure little sailors pub, it makes sense that Pirates have a special place in our rather unique collection.
