Very rare, beautiful antique brass weight set. It's the only one I have ever come across in all my years of collecting weight sets. A set of 5 nesting cups and each one is marked.
From the largest to the smallest: 16, 8, 4, 2, and 1. It also marked "TROY" on the largest one. But I doubt it refers to troy ounces, since the numbers stamped on the pieces seem to refer to standard ounces. At least, that is what they come out to when measured on a regular scale.
The largest one measures 2 5/8" in diameter by 1 7/8" tall.
