A fully working set of floor standing scales from the esteemed firm of W & T. Avery Ltd, Birmingham. Made of oak, it has a brass scale, including a sliding height scale, and its original weights. In the base, a small lidded compartment holds an adjustment key. By the end of the 19th century, Avery had become specialists in weighing machines, using the skill and expertise of the industrial manufacturing industry. The quality of these working scales for measuring the human body is clearly to be seen.
