Description
Family weight scale, black with brass hangings. It has a flat back with a long cylindrical housing that contains the spring. The spring is attached to a hook at one end. This hook held the item being weighed. At the other end, there is a round eyelet that is for the item to be hung from something.The reverse has several inscriptions and on the lower half (nearest to the hook attachment end of the spring) a narrow slot allows a small metal pointer to travel up and down a scale of numbers from 0 - 50. As weight is applied to the hook it pulls the spring down and therefore the pointer which indicates the weight.
