Antique Brass 18th Century Guinea / Sovereign Balance Scales & Weights in Case


A Set of Antique 18th Century Solid Brass and Steel Guinea / Sovereign Balance Pan Scales, with their Two Brass Weights, and in their Original Painted Metal Case.

These are a genuine period item and not a reproduction or copy.

The Scales themselves have general minor signs of use and age but are working and intact, with no structural issues, cracks or major damage.

The Pan Strings and Tassel look to be original or at least certainly not recent replacements.

The Metal Case and its original Paintwork show some signs of age and use but have no major damage or structural issues.

Inside the Case is serviceable and although a little tired it still retains its Linings and Storage for the Weights.

There is also an interesting piece of paper adhered to the underside of the Case.

The Hinge to the Case has a little damage but it still works well.

The Lid will stay closed firmly as required.

This Set would make a good addition to a Collection, and / or a nice Gift / Accessory.

This is all shown in the many pictures, please examine them in close up before you bid, so as to satisfy yourself as to the condition and suitability, etc, of the item.

I always show items in their true light, and will not deliberately hide anything negative or detrimental.

The Case measures approx' :- 13.0 cms Long x 5.60 cms Deep x 1.60 cms High.

Each Pan is approx' :- 4.20 cms in Diameter.

Scales and Case together weigh :- 91.0 gms  (not packed for Shipping)

Any questions please get in touch, and good luck should you decide to bid.

I will post in the U.K. by First or Second Class Recorded Mail, and Worldwide by Royal Mail International Signed For.

I believe these to be the safest postal methods for both buyer and seller, and well worth the extra cost, as they are all trackable and /or require a signature on delivery.

More than one lot to the same address at the same time will of course be at a discount, please get in touch with your requirements for a quote.

To all potential Bidders .... Should you consider my Postage Charges to be expensive I would rather you didn't Bid and then leave me bad Detailed Seller Ratings on Postage Cost afterwards please, ....I would much prefer that you first take into account the Postage Costs which are displayed clearly in the Listing, and then bid accordingly. Many Thanks.

I always provide a Top-Class Service and a well packed item, please see my Feedback for References.

Thank-you for looking.
