Antique Scale, Torsion Balance Co. New York 1891

This is a second scale purchased by hubs and I at an antique auction. The wording on it reads:

The Torsion Balance Co.
New York
Pat. May '91
Style 257
#34681

This appears to be a pharmacy or chemical company scale.


Hubby took the scale apart, gave it a thorough cleaning and replaced a few broken parts.

What a difference! It gleams and is in excellent condition. A very nice addition to our collection.
