Chatillon's Improved Circular Spring Balance Scale - weight capacity of 60 pounds (by ounces). Circa 1890 - 1910. Great looking piece that actually works! would look great as an accent piece in a kitchen, or even a market. The face of the scale appears to be brass tin?) and back is painted black.
The height of the scale face is 12", chain i1 14" and hanger hook 4". Made in New York. by John Chatillon & Sons
Have not cleaned the piece, but have left for your discretion, has great patina
