The Fourteen Balls Toy Co. began in June 1986 and has been making automata ever since.
The company consists of Matt Smith who Designs and makes all the automata and Sarah Smith who has been doing the bulk of the painting for the past few years . Sarah is now training to become a silversmith so much of the painting is now also done by me ( Matt ).
Paul Spooner who designed a lot of the early Fourteen Balls automata has not been involved since 2003 , all designs since then have been designed and made by by Matt Smith .
A list of the automata produced is on the next two pages and from there you can link onto a detailed description with photographs of each of the models . The Models are listed in chronological order and provide a history in themselves .
NB. I try to be as accurate as I can with numbers but The numbers of each model produced may need updating in some cases .
