Antique Postal Scale and Letter Holder, circa 1900
A mahogany and brass postage scale found in France but most likely British. Standing on three brass ball feet, the scale comes with three brass weights, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, and 4 oz, each of which rest in a recessed and felted slot. With a serpentine front and brass holders for mail, the piece has not been cleaned but left to the collector. Substantial wear is age appropriate.
