Made by British company Salters in the mid 20th century - these superb vintage Salter's Class II spring balance scales have a full brass face and iron pointer. The scale is marked off in 2 oz increments to a total of 40 lbs ( for hundredweights - ask your parents!) The dial has its original assay stamps. These pull scales are hung by the top hoop from a fixed point and the item(s) to be weighed are attached to the bottom hook. The weight of the object(s) will then move the pointer and the weight can be read on the dial. The Salters logo of a knotted rope is visible on the lower face. A fine decorators piece which is not currently calibrated.
Dimensions of main scale (without hook and ring) 23 x 10.5 x 3 cm or 9.05 x 4.13 x 1.18 inches.
Weight 1067 grams or 686 penny weight.
