This is a beautiful original antique postal scale from the late 1800's - early 1900's. It is made of wood and brass metal and comes with the original brass weights. The brass weights each have their original slot in front which is lined inside with red velvet. The base is a beautiful wood and the top right side plate has the postal rates of that day etched into the top. The scales measure 8 inches in length, 4.5 inches in width and 4 in height. They are in very good working condition.
