Three Early Rare Victorian Porcelain Scale Weights
W & T Avery Birmingham, England 1818 - 1979
A lovely early run of ceramic and lead grocer / merchant scale weights. 8oz,1lb, 2lbs. Original lead liners that include the various stamps impresses into the lead from inspectors. Ceramic scale weights were forbidden use in the early 20th century because chips and shaved lead produced incorrect weights.
A lovely set in very good condition. 8 oz has light discoloration.
