Rare Antique Brass Apothecary Pharmacy Balance Scales And Weights For Sale

Rare  Antique Brass Apothecary Pharmacy Balance Scales And Weights

In earlier times, we had to rely on passing or visiting apothecaries for our medicines. To dispense them, the apothecary used sets of hand held beam balances and weights. These had panes made of varying materials depending on the preparation being dispensed and the scales continued to be used in dispensing chemists until the advent of more modern weighing machines.

This sale is for a superb and increasingly rare set of scales. The setis operated by depressing a lever, which lifts the beam and pans, enabling items to be weighed. The set has a8" brass beam (with turned finials), one brass panes and one glass paneglass panes, measuring 2.75" in diameter.I am afriad this set has clearly not seen the 'weights and measures man' in some time as itdoes not balance well!There are also a number of brass apothecary weights. The hardwood drawer/box measures 10" by 5" by 2" high and the scales are 14" in height. The drawer has a turned wooden knob .

A stunning and highly collectable piece of history. Please note that this is a heavy set andwill be expensive to ship outside the UK
