Very Large Mid-19th Century French Iron Cheese Scale or Pot Rack with Weights

About

This very large iron cheese scale from the Jura mountains near the Swiss border hangs from above and was originally used to weigh Comté or Morbier wheels of cheese. Two weights with hooks may be moved along the horizontal measuring bar to achieve a balance. The measuring bar is stamped J. B. Jeunet and dated 1862, and the hexagonal weight is marked Etalon 5 Kilog or Standard 5 Kilograms in English. With an impressive drop of 40 inches and a scale platform measuring 26 inches square, this large-scale piece would be ideal as a unique pot rack.
