Ca.1840 Victorian R W Winfield Candlestick Spring Balance Postal Letter Scales For Sale

This is a highly collectable brass candlestick spring balance type letter/postal scale with a fancy rococo rounded hexagonal base which dates from the early Victorian period. The stem is embossed with ‘No. 170 JANUARY 13 1840 R W WINFIELD BIRMINGHAM’ below a graduated 4 ounce scale with the corresponding price, up to 8 old pennies (marked ‘D’), opposite. I believe this dates it to the period 1840-1865 after which, postal rates increased. In good condition with the spring in fine working order and the little cursor reading accurately, it measures approximately 6 inches (15.5 cms) tall.

Please see photographs for more detail.
