POSTAL SCALE, GERMAN, BRASS & IRON ca 1880
This cast iron andbrass scaleis marked F. Soennecken Bonn. The eagle is solid brass as are the beam and the pans. There is much detail on the eagle's wings and on his claws on the perch. The scale has a maximum of 500 grams, which leads one to suspect that it had other uses besides weighing letters.
The base and the vertical rod are iron. They are painted black with gold accent lines and retain almost all of their original paint. On the underside of the base is a raised mark of a beehive complete with bees. There is some rust on the underside. This is a truly rare and unusual scale.
The table upon which the pictures were taken was not level, causing the pans to swing freely away from the base. There is nothing wrong about them.
