Wonderful Set of Brass Medicine or Gold Measuring Scales
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great set of scales. These are often referred to by collectors as apothecary scales for measuring medicine but they also were used to measure gold and other items. That was the case with these scales. It has the pair of brass pans that hang from the top balance bar which would have been suspended to achieve the perfect balance. A known weight would be placed on one side and the material to be measured would be added tot he other side until they two bowls were even. This is a great set of scales with a ton of character.
