Apothecary Scales c.1880, an incredible collector’s item that sparks the imagination. The diameter of each brass disc is 5cm.  The cross bar is approximately 12cm long. These scales were used to weigh pharmaceutical items until the late 1960s, and had been used in various forms for about 2000 years prior. Fascinating!
