Early 20th Century French Brass and Cast  Iron 'Force' 5kg  Balance  Scales

*Please note that this item must be collected from our Gallery only. 

Height 250mm 

Length across front: 395mm

Width: 115mm

 

A  striking set of vintage French made balance scales - a constant feature of the vintage 
boutique de l'épicier and farmer's market, and a must have for the well equipped kitchen counter.

They would make the perfect addition to a  french, antique, or industrial inspired kitchen with their beautifully aged patina.

These scales  date from around the early 1900's .  They have cast iron base in black with two round brass dishes. Marked on cast iron reading "FORCE" and "5 KILOG". A statement piece to bring a touch old world  French charm to your kitchen decor.

Also a wonderfully decorative display feature for fruit and vegetables!

The balance is in good working order. 

The cast iron shows signs of age related wear, oxidation and some discolouration to the original black. 

The brass dishes exhibit some pitting and greening and some dents.

Weights are not included.
