A great addition to your antique home decor or store. This would make a great gift for anyone interested in antique scales or anyone who is looking for a country store decor.
Antique scale measures 14" face diameter (18.5" face height) by 17" wide by 16.5" tall and weighs 24lb 15oz.
In good working condition with signs of use commensurate with age, it is currently calibrated to accommodate the weight of the produce tray at 0 lbs. There is a small chip from the red enamel on the side of the hanging tray (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description). As with all mechanical items I would recommend having re calibrated prior to use to ensure accuracy.
