Victorian letter weighing balance
This is a really attractive, solid brass example of a Victorian balance for weighing letters in order to determine the cost of postage.
The postal rates printed on the pan date this balance to between 1871 and 1897, and it has its full matching set of weights.
It is in superb condition, fully functioning and looking stunning.
The base has a beautiful art nouveau floral design with a flower head also present in each of the indents to house the weights.
It stands 3.5 inches tall and 8.75 inches wide. It’s a really beautiful example and feels substantial, with a overall weight before packing of around 1kg.
If you have any queries regarding this item or would like more pictures of any part then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
It really is a rare and beautiful complete piece.
