Here for sale is a fantastic antique glass cased balance. Made by Becker's Sons of Rotterdam. Christopher Becker started the business in the Netherlands. The two sons took over the business the middle part of the 19th Century. The case is framed in mahogany, with pull out drawer inside.
The scales would have be used in a apothecary or laboratory for the weighing of fine quantities of gold, liquids or powders. Original brass pull to front. There is a small set of gold weights included in the drawer.
The pull up glass door to the front is stiff and doesn't run smoothly. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!
