Antique Henry Troemner Scale No 44 w/ Blue Metal Decorative Base Ball Weight Circa 1870s. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself! Very unique scale here in that it has a great designed cast iron base and then a nickel plated ball weight.
For your collectors, you do not come across this model in such nice shape very often. Would have sat in a store or pharmacy on a counter for measuring various products. The scale was made by Henry Troemner of Philadelphia, PA and in the latter 1800s. This is the Model No. 44 which is embossed on the base of the scale.The scale has a 5 pound capacity. The scale base was painted a lighter blue color most recently and then a yellow before that. None of those two colors is original to the piece. A nickel plated ball weight is with the piece. Probably re-lacquered at some juncture. Also the original ball weight that goes across the 1-16 ounce scale on the front of the scale is in place.
The brass pan is in place. Has some small dings to it.
The pans are 14-7/8" across by 9.5" wide, by 3 tall. Nice gauge brass here, not a cheap sheet piece. This beautiful and unique Henry Troemner Scale is 10-7/8" tall, by 17" across (21" with pan), by 9.5" wide (4-7/8 scale w/o pan). Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
