A marble and walnut balance scale from the 1870's was used for weighing gold, silver or drugs in an apothecary.
The old finish is in very good condition on this American made antique. Nickel and brass pans are removable, this would have been used with a set of weights, not included. The knob releases the pans to float free. The scale appears to be in working order, but is not legal for trade today.
Measurements are 14" x 7" and 6 1/2" tall.
