Description

Plush-lined shaped case approximately 5¼”x 3″ contains a virtually mint example of thisrather attractive letter scale by Parnell. The scale itself weighs up to 4 ounces in ½oz increments and a corresponding scale converts the weight intothe cost of mailing (up to 8 old pence – in the good old days before inflation became the norm!). In addition to the scales the brass surfaces have been hand-chased with superb organic designs making the whole device an absolute delight. The shapely case is alsoin very good condition with a good (and minute!) catch and sound hinges.

I am always willing to purchase quality items within my areas of interest.
