Vintage French Bijouterie scales
These unique vintage French scales or ‘Balance’, were used by jewelers for weighing gold or silver. It dates back to the 1930’s. I have come across many scales in the French markets, but I have never seen one like this before, for weighing jewellery with horn dishes. The scales are made from wood in a black colour with brass components around and inside the reading glass and a marble top. The dishes are made of horn and have a brass handle. It goes to a maximum of 1 kg / 1000 grms. A wooden block of brass weights up to 1 kg / 1000 grms complements the scales. Size: w 35.5 x d 15.5 x h 19cm. The horn dishes w/handles are 16 x 14cm. Weight of the scales including the block of weights is 3870 grms. Postage from France included for this very unique set.
