19th Century French Marble Top Scale
A gorgeous antique French balance scale, made by Catenot-Beranger of Lyon, around 1860.
Scale has a marble top on a wooden base with thread inlay and brass pans. The center has decorative, quite ornate bronze and glass encased measurement piece with arrows indicating balance.
The brass pans are marked by the manufacturer.
This scale measures 13-1/2" long by 5-1/2" wide and 5-1/4" tall to the top of the pans. It was likely used in an pharmacy, grocery store or bakery.
A heavy and truly stunning old scale. Makes a wonderful statement piece!
