When you look at this superb set of Apothecary scales, it's hard to believe that it all dismantles and actually fits into the drawer below.

When putting these together, I have attached the pin to the scale .. see the photographs to see how this pin just slots in the top and secures the scales. The balance and pans are made from solid English brass, professionally polished to gleam. The balance is stamped with the V (crown) R for Victoria Regina (Queen Victorian), making these a true Victorian pair. They are also signed by the London manufacturer, Thurston and Sons, Leyton.

The set comes complete with a set of polished bell weights. The two brass pans when resting sit just above the top of the Mahogany base and when needed the lever in the centre is pushed down to allow the scales to do their job. .

Excellent condition and a good impressive size, the base measures 171/2" x 9 1/2"x 4 1/2" tall. When fully constructed, the scale towers 26 1/2" tall. Victorian in era dating to c.1880.
