Traditional Hot Air Balloon

Up, Up and away! This balloon is painted in colorful, bright stripes with acrylic paints and covered in a protective coat of aged varnish. Both balloon and basket are made of a heavy paper mache pulp. The basket was made big enough to hold a little doll or figurine. The bear (not included - made by Letty Worley) is on a balloon ride to nowhere...but she looks like she's having fun!
About 19"h x 9"w. Hangs from adjustable heavy duty clear line - $120
