This scale features a mahogany wood base and lid, a white marble work surface, and a plain glass insert in the mahogany lid. The front of the unmarked case bears a single knob used for raising and lowering the scale cups on the stage. This set includes two scale cups with arrow-shaped needles, a 60 mm wide depression in the marble, and a small paper envelope containing the following weights: 10 GRN, 5 GRN, 3 GRN, 3 Drachm, and 2 Drams. Careful inspection of the entire scale, including below the marble work surface, reveals no nameplates, maker`s marks, or patent dates whatsoever. The only marking on this scale is the number 2, which may indicate the model number. Henry Troemner & Co. made similar scales with marble bases. The provenance suggests that this scale was used at Yankee Jim`s. The overall dimensions are 13" x 5.75" x 6.5". Good condition; perfect glass.
