Balloon designs by Charles & Robert and Montgolfier Featured 18 Jun 2012 Image

Balloon designs by Charles & Robert and Montgolfier

Balloon designs by Charles and Robert (1, 5) and the Montgolfier Brothers (2, 3, 4). No. 3 ascended from Versailles. No. 4 ascended from the Chateau de la Muette. No. 5 ascended from the Tuileries Gardens. With a vignette of Jupiter giving the crown to the Montgolfiers. Mercury is shown distraught at the fear of losing his job (ie as a flying messenger of the gods). Below is an allegorical female figure representing the River Seine, from where the pioneers ascended. The Latin motto reads: Stat Sine Morte Decus -- their honour is immortal.
circa 1780s
