A very nice set of antique balance beam scales by the makers - Day and Millward (circa 1900). Solid brass, wonderfully used/aged timber base, extremely well constucted - A perfect addition to any country kitchen.Used in Victorian shops/grocers for the weighing of tea, coffee, sweets etc. This set originated from a sweet & tobacco merchant in Mexborough, South Yorkshire (pre bus station-closed 1960s).
Included are the brass weights and scoop. At first sight I thought they had been repaired - not so, solder has been added to the base of the dish, possibly to improve accuracy.
