Sweet Shop / Retail Scales

Manufactured By ASCO Ltd of Broadheath Manchester

A lovely set of white enamelled shop scales

Marked in quarter ounce units to a max weight of 2lbs

Style Number 402 - Serial Number 1720

These lovely vintage shop scales are marked in half new pence units on the pointer from 8p per pound up to 40p per pound. The weight scale is in quarter ounce divisions up to a maximum of two pounds. The calibration is good, matching my brass kitchen scale weights right across the range from one or two ounces up to two pounds. The mechanism is clean and tidy, the knife edge pivots are all sharp and undamaged. The pointer is oil damped. All in all a well made precision instrument.

If you study the pictures you will see there are some marks in the enamel, in my opinion this enahnces the vintage feel of the scales.

The scales are very heavy indeed, because of this I am listing as buyer collects. You could either collect from the Holmfirth area or from just off Junction 5 of the M40 in Stokenchurch where I work during the week.

If collection is not possible I am happy to work with winning bidder to arrange a courier but be warned the scale is very heavy.

I am happy to except either PayPal or cash on collection.

Good luck and
