Here for sale is a fantastic set of late 19th or early 20th century industrial scales by W&T Avery Ltd, Birmingham.
The company were founded in the 18th century, becoming W&T Avery in 1818 and were incorporated as a Ltd Company in 1891. The company started in Birmingham before expanding. Difficult to date these items, but we estimate them to be an early set dating possible from the late 19th or early 20th Century.
The scales are extremely heavy being constructed of cast iron.
Wear to the gilt, but has a wonderful patina. 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!
