|This scale is in very nice original condition, still retaining its original set of cup weights. The steel arm, stand, and pans dismantle for carrying in the drawer of the mahogany box, and there is a compartment in the drawer for the weights. Such scales were made for commercial use, in everything from selling spices to pigments for paint. The nine brass weights are in Troy ounces, from 30 down to 1/5th.
No maker's name is shown. It is likely to have been made by Avery of Birmingham or a similar firm in the 19th century.
