This scale stood on a desk in the early 20th century and was used on to weigh letters.
The weighing section is made of copper.
To measure weight, the needle had to be placed exactly in the middle. The weighing is performed with four copper weights placed in the notches on the bottom. English marks 4, 2, 1, 1/2 ounce on the weights. A total of six weights that fit together on top of each other.
Excluding the weights, the scale weighs 363 grams.
