The stunning brass balance beam of this scale is about 9" high. Intended for decorative purposes only, this one of a kind scale should not be used for weight measurement. There are a few slightly defective latches on the box. By unscrewing the center of the lovely balance beam, you can easily disassemble it and store it in the box.
This display apothecary scales comes with: one 1 gram weight, two 2 gram weights, one 5 gram weight, two 10 gram weights, one 20 gram weight and one 50 gram weight.
The apothecary scale makes a great display item, but it not meant for accurate measurement.
