We offer a splendid hanging balance scale that is early American and dates from the late 18th to very early 19th century. It dates from the period 1790-1810.
It consists of a a central support with a hinhed iron support holding two reinforced brass dishes. The top pivot has a pointer which remains at the perpendicular when both dishes are evenly weighted.
The mark resembles a large V with a smaller V within it.
We have not endeavoured to cklean this example of early American material.
