J. White & Sons Antique ScaleJ. White & Sons
Item ID: J. White & Sons Antique Scale
Antique scale made by John White & Sons in the late 1800s. One of the nicer ones we've seen. And it comes with a 6 piece weight set! J. White & Son is the oldest independent weighing company in the UK, dating back to 1715. This piece is fully functional and in beautiful condition for its age.
- Measures about 26" tall (including wood base). The wood base measures about 18" wide and 9" deep.
- Made of polished brass.
- Made in the UK.
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition. There are some imperfections that you would expect from an antique item such as spotting on the brass and minor dents. The wood base is worn from use with scratches, etc. There is a felt bottom that seems to have been added at a later time on the underside of the wood base. The top needle appears to have a bend in it, not sure if this is a manufacturing defect, or if it was from damage at some point (please see photo). But the imperfections just make this piece even more attractive. They're all consistent with use and age, and not from negligence or abuse of the item. This is really a beautiful and special piece that displays wonderfully.
