Number 4 in series,
The large plate depicts a large hot air balloon with a panel describing the image.
The plate has a panel which reads:-
1718/25 Agosto/Alban E Vallet Fanno/ Dei Tentative Di Direzio0ne Con Delle Ali.
The name of the pattern comes from the first hot air ballooner. On the 21st November in 1784 a balloon made by two French brothers, Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier was launched from the centre of Paris and flew for a period of 20 minutes: It was the birth of hot air ballooning.
