This Apothecary Scale is an antique item from the mid-1800's we're guessing. (It could very well be older.) It's made of brass and is made to be suspended from something while the gold or chemicals/medicine is weighed.
This little scale comes with little weights - complete with arcane symbols for metals or chemicals. It comes in the original wooden box with a handwritten "key" to the symbols. The "key" is also antique and looks like a very arcane object to us!
Was this used for measuring gold or jewels or in an apothecary? We're not experts - but its certainly a fascinating object for collectors of antique scales and scientific devices. - You will receive the scale, the box, the handwritten key, the tong for placing weights on the scale and the weights. Our props and the hand model are not included.
The wooden box measures: 6 3/4" x 3" x 1"
