A French brass hanging butcher's scale from the 19th century. This French scale features a horizontal beam with its weight at the end. A circular tray, connected to the top with three profiled links hangs below. The upper beam will hang from the ceiling or perhaps an archway thanks to two chains. While simple in its function, the quality of the piece is undeniable, as demonstrated in the treatment of the surface, particularly in the scrolled motifs adorning the upper section. Highly decorative, this French 19th century brass butcher's scale would decorate any kitchen, café or restaurant beautifully.
