Salter's Spring Balance Scale

Salter's Spring Balance Scale
Salter's Spring Balance Scale
Made in England. Part of our scale collection.

SALTER HOUSEWARES itself began life in the late 1700S in the village of Bilston, England. At this time Richard Salter, a spring maker, began making 'pocket steelyards', a scale similar to the fisherman's scale of today.

By 1825 his nephew George had taken over the company, which became known as GEORGE SALTER & CO. and later established a large, well equipped manufacturing site in the town of West Bromwich.

The brass face reads:
