France

Object: Trebuchet balance (More lots)
Material: Brass, Bronze, Paper, Wood

Country of Origin: France
Condition: Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes
Dimensions: 16.7×5×1.6 cm
Weight: 250 g

Original gold scale in a wooden sleeve. The size, near that of an spectacle case, could easily be placed in a pocket. The trebuchet, or change scale, is a very delicate small scale for weighing currencies.

From the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, this type of scale was used by traders to control the weight of the many currencies circulating before the revolution in France, especially those in gold.

The coins in circulation came both from the King of France and from the authorities of the neighbouring countries: The Netherlands, Italy, England, and Spain. With the evolution of the price of gold and silver changed the weight of the coins often, so it was essential for some professions to control the weight of the species.
On the inside of the case you can read the text with the value of the various coins.

The second item is a wooden weights box with 7 weights.
Dimensions: 5.2 x 10.5 x 3.5 cm

The lot will be safely packaged and shipped with registration.
