Quality Cast Iron Victorian Shop Scales by Day & Millward Birmingham
Stunning original Victorian shop scales in cast iron.
These beautiful nineteenth Century retail scales have numerous decorative details, and much of the original paintwork still remains. Adorned with beautiful gold and red leaf patterned detail and the makers name in striking gold on both sides of the scales, these are truly striking.
Made by renowned makers Day & Millward, based in Birmingham, the quality of their weighing scales was recognised with an award at the 1851 Grand Exhibition in London.
Still in full working order, they can hold up to 28lb. A large item, these scales would be perfect to add a statement and a talking point to a kitchen interior or in a business setting.
As with all antique and vintage items, this piece does show signs of its age through natural wear. There is some rust to the cast iron around the base and on one of the scale pans. However, this in no way detracts from the look of the piece and is still very usable.
Height, 48cm; Width, 51cm; Depth, 31cm.
