Unique cast iron hanging steelyard balance scale with an ample amount of surface rust.
It measures 17" long. Note the interesting embossed star on the end with the hooks. Included is a hanging counterweight that slides along the notched beam. It has a beautiful, authentic, aged metal patina. There is minor surface rust that could be removed with a gentle cleaning and oiling, but I will leave that to the discretion of the buyer.
There are notched and numbered increments from 1 to 10 on one side of the metal beam, and 10 to 50 on the other.
The history of these types of scales is fascinating with lots of info online.
