You may already have a Salter scale in your kitchen to weigh out flour for your baking but these Pocket Balances are an antique treasure. We have never seen one like this with the original pan and box. 

History: The pocket balance was first created in 1770 by Richard Salter in the UK. From the late 18th century onwards these scales were widely used in markets, grocers and farm shops – wherever people needed to be able to verify the weight of goods to be purchased in order to calculate the correct pricing. Now it would make a beautiful addition to a stylish home. 

Dimensions: main body 16cm. Box - 16 x 11.5cm. 

Pre-loved: in great vintage condition and comes with original box.
