Victorian Bankers Brass Balance Scale by W & T Avery

$2,800

About

This is a mighty contraption for weighing specie and gold in quantity. It stands on three scrolling feet. It has a blocking and unblocking mechanism, so it can be moved with less difficulty. It is made entirely of brass including pans and chains. The balance is twice signed W&T Avery ltd, Birmingham. Although this has a function, its form is highly sculptural and would provide a suitable ornament for the financier who has everything.
