Antique German grocer's balance scale GESTZ GESCH, made at the end of the 19th century. Capacity 5 kg. Body in iron, Hand forged iron mechanism, riveted assembly, bowl in brass with spout. Green original olive paint, tracks of décoration and relief in white. Very lightly rusty and some age related nicks but it's in really nice shape and still functional. Veritable piece of collection, extremely rare and difficult to find. The scale measures 21,5 " long, by 9" wide and 9" height including the bowl spout (55 cm x 23 cm x 23 cm). Superb example of German engineering and industrial design from the 19th century.
