This lovely toy has two composition acrobats which are held in place on wires.
The frame is cast metal and wire. It can be taken apart.
The base has Made in France embossed.
When the two figures are placed on the top rung, if the various poles are exactly lined up, you can rotate the two figures and it will spin and slowly descend the scaffold.
I believe it to date from the early 20th century.
(there is some wear)

--14.1/4in. (36cm.) high
