This scale was manufactured by Howard & Davis in Roxbury, Massachusettes who made a variety of scales while in business from 1842-1857. This scale specifically was made for the individual cities, towns, and counties in Massachusetts to ensure the accuracies of scales used in local businesses under the “Commonwealth Massachusettes” ordinance. Label states: “Made for the town of Springfield By Howard & Davis Boston Mass.”
Please note: these scales were originally meant to rest in a custom made case that allows for the bottom center pole to poke through. It will require a custom base to stand properly, please let us know if this is something you would be interested in and we can fabricate a base to fit your needs. It does sit comfortably on two risers e.g. cement blocks or wood blocks.
Dimensions listed are as a whole when assembled. Can be disassembled for ease of shipping.
