19th c. Cast Iron Scale c.1899
This is a cast iron Universal Family Scale with a metal face. It is stamped "1899" under the tray . A small dial directly above the arrow calibrates the dial. (It has since been calibrated to 0 after the photo.) The scale works well. It seems to have had decorations on both sides. The piece is solidly built and works properly.
