A stunning set of antique brass Sovereign scales in excellent condition
This Simmons Improved Sovereign Balance, a brass rocker balance 3.8 inches (9.5cm) in length, is stamped with a crown to the counterweight, the base stamped with a crown and ‘SOVEREIGN WARRANTED’ and the balance with two openings , ‘SOVEREIGN WARRANTED’ and ‘SOVEREIGN 1/2’.
The original box, a little worn, carries the label announcing; “To Weigh and Gauge Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns’
Being so exact that no counterfeit can possibly go through the gauge, of sufficient weight to turn the balance”.
Thomas Simmons was a well known manufacturer of scales who worked from New John Street and Beak Street, Birmingham from 1818 to 1833
