Early Victorian Porcelain Scale Weight

Staffordshire, England  1860 - 1890

A lovely Imperial ceramic and lead grocer / merchant 2 lb. scale weight.  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 rare to find weight with numerous hairlines which add to the character and authenticity.
