Antique Cast Iron & Brass Balance Scales make a great centerpiece on the kitchen island, or the foundation for a flower or fruit arrangement!  Heavy cast iron base has been painted a rich forest green, and features an axle in the middle with a needle pointer, and a known amount of weight was placed into the pan (up to 5 kilograms or 11 pounds), with the product being sold or measured into the flared-rim pot.  Ubiquitous across Western society for over a century, such relics were gradually replaced with spring weights then finally digital scales.  Perfect for adding an Old World touch to your decor.
Circa early 1900s
