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

Look almost new and unused

I shall leave the images to complete my description.
