Description

This set of scales look to date from the turn of the twentieth century. They are designed to be hung up and have hooks at each side. They are stamped with United Yeast Co. Ltd. and so may have been used to weigh bread or small sacks. They are also stamped 'Class C' and 'To Weigh 4lbs'. They are contained within an oak box and also present are two 2lb weights. The box and weights are probably not original.


Measurements

Height : 38 cm - 14.96 in
