We can sadly impart no pearls of wisdom regarding this fantastically quirky set of scales other than to tell you that they are French and were used for weighing cheeses but more recently as a reading lamp.. How old?.......who knows but their looks and construction suggest the early years of the last century at least. Consisting of, mainly, pine with steel and iron fittings the base does have a few of those large typically French woodworm holes but nothing to worry about as they have been soused with the correct fluid. Fully functional - providing you have a set of weights as they come with just a few imperial ones - or an eccentrically decorative and functional conversation piece. Leather bound books included are Victorian illustrated Chambers Encyclopedias.
