Decorative Antique French Balance Scale, used to weigh ingredients in a French cuisine. Made of very heavy cast iron, this scale has an unusual red paint finish, which I almost never find. Accented with gold hand-painted striping. A wonderful counter top piece - perfect for a kitchen island.
Originally used in the south of France. The brass pans show plenty of age, patina and wear, this scale was used for actual weighing. Display in your kitchen or on a French hutch, with your other kitchen antiques, in any French Country setting, or to add a French antique to a contemporary home for personal style. A fantastic addition to your collection.
