Selling an antique hanging balance beam scale (a type of weight scale formerly used in the old days to weigh mostly crop). This scale has all of its original parts, including the brass & lead iron pear. Beam part (also made of brass) measures 13 ¼ inches long; total length of scale from top hook to bottom of pan is 29 inches tall; pan measures 9 ½ inches in diameter. The patina on this piece is absolutely stunning, with shades of dark forest green bronze. Most parts on this scale is made of brass except for the chains, hooks and the top part that holds the three chains. Makes a wonderful piece of conversation, a great collector?s item, a stunning hanging garden for the lady ? or the man! of the house and is a great piece of rural farmland history. Most likely one of a kind in its current condition.
