Tear Drop Pocket Postal Scale, C. 1890s:
A Victorian period pocket postal scale in brass. It has a spring clip for securing the envelope, a weighted needle, and calibration for 1, 2 & 4 ounces. There were several patented postal scales of this type, but this one has no maker's name. It works effectively still, and has a nicely aged patina, unpolished.
