Brass has been lightly polished on this piece, but no other restoration was done.
This is an old tradesman’s spring sale that almost certainly hung in a shop somewhere. This one has a seal at the top saying it is approved by New York City so odds are good that was where it came from. Fully marked. Has a loop for hanging from a shop sealing and a hook for a weighing basket or items. Still surprisingly accurate (not perfect by any means but we tried it at 15 and 30 lbs and it came in darn close both times).
Marked: “Warranted and Made by F. Forschner New York” on main brass face up above the scale itself and right above that is a small 1/2” round seal that reads “Approved type 34 Serial D New York City
Body is 16” 1/2 x ~ 3” 5/8. Width ~ 2” 1/4. Hook roughly 4” 1/2 long.
Lightly polished on the brass but otherwise untouched.
As always we are happy to combine shipping, as well as take back pieces if you are not satisfied. (Please see return policy)
