Cast Iron Kitchen Scale with Weights
This is an English cast iron kitchen scale painted black. The only marks on the scale are located on the housing at the base of the scale. The marks read "To Weigh in Lbs." Normally, scales indicate the capacity of the scale. It is difficult to read the capacity shown on the housing. It appears to be the number "1" but that doesn't seem right because I could weight objects much more than 1 lb. There are three weights with capacities of 1 lb, 4 oz, and 2 oz. These weights are vintage, but don't think they are original to this scale.
The scale is 12 inches wide at the top from the pan for the weights to the edge of round pan. The scale is 7 1/4 inches high to the edge of the round pan.
A wonderful scale that is in good order, works and displays beautifully.
