Some days are quite ordinary and some days turn up something special. This was found on a special day - this wonderful piece of kitchenalia was found in a yard sale and had been sitting in an old out house for years, it was forgotten and almost lost until we came across it.

The balance goes from 0.5 kilo about a pound to 15 kilos, the weight is covered with a metal casing that has seen better days - this item is only for decoration and not for food use. Although this was in an old kitchen the balance itself could be used for weighing any item that could be held on a hook - meat, fish or fowl, flour or grain.

This hasnt been used for years and is as such in good order, all the pieces are there and it could be used today - it is only for decoration but would look fabulous hanging in a kitchen!

It is 34 cms long just short of 14 inches and is 19 cm deep about 7.5 inches. It weighs 805 grams 1lb 12.5 ozs

Lighting and Electrical Goods

Our lighting all works unless otherwise stated. All electrical items need to be checked by a local electrician to ensure compatibility with local electrical standards.
The bulb fittings are compatable with 240V electrical supply which covers most of the world.
If you live in a country that has 110V electrical supply all you need to do to convert the lights is ask an electrician to replace the bulb holders when he is fitting the lights. All the wiring is suitable for world wide use. It's that simple!
