I really love this set of postal scales. Such fine workmanship; please note the beautifully engraved pans. A charming pair of antique English desk scales with a shaped base in walnut standing on four original ebonised bun feet. The brass pans are rather special---shaped and engraved. The balance has the makers initials STS for the manufacturer, Samuel Turner Senior and also marked Warranted Accurate. The front has the set of four weights including the bell shaped topper. Dating to around 1880, this Victorian example is in excellent condition. Overall size is approximately 8 1/4" x 4 3/4" x 4" tall. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
