One of the things I love about these gorgeous scales (and there are many things!) is the way the price of postage was stamped into the flat brass pan of the scales - there was no inflation in those days! These would have been in daily use in a UK post office for weighing letters in order to determine the stamp required. The five different weights (the smallest one is not original to the scales) are set into the wooden base, sitting in felt lined depressions. The central balance is ornately designed and made, purely for decorative purposes. We have sympathetically restored these scales bringing their beauty back to life whilst also honouring their history and allowing them to show their character and age. We think they truly are wonderful!
