Hot Air Balloon Plates Set
A very rare set of dessert plates in the Hot Air Balloons series by JKW Bavaria made in Western Germany sometime after 1949. Each plate shows a famous moment in the history of the hot air ballon:
(i) Globo Frances 1783 which depicts the very first hot air balloon invented and flown by the French Montgolfier brothers;
(ii) Globo de Lunardi 1785 which depicts the hot air balloon flown by the Italian "Daredevil Aeronaut" Vincent Lunardi who flew the first hot air balloon in England; and
(iii) Globo de Fedele Carmine 1788 - very little is known about Fedele Carmine.
