Fabulous victorian grocer's scales by Avery made of wrought iron swan neck with original "VR" Heights measures seal mark. It has copper weigh plates and 5 graduated weights. The weights are 1 lb., 8 oz., 4 oz., 2 oz., and 1 oz. The scales balance perfectly. The item wanting to be weighed is placed on the large copper plate and weights are added to the other copper plate until it achieves perfect balance and that is how much the item weighs. The height of the scales is 19" high and 21" wide at it's widest points. This scale dates to the 19th c. and is in remarkable condition for over 100 years old. A great collector's piece!
