RITTENHOUSE SQUARE PHILADELPHIA PHYSICIAN ESTATE.
OFFERING FOR AUCTION THIS VERY EARLY LEATHER CASED APOTHECARY SCALE WITH WEIGHTS CIRCA 1800. THE SCALE HAS ORIGINAL PANS AND I BELIEVE THAT THE CORDS ARE ALSO ORIGINAL TO THE ITEM, ALTHOUGH THEY ARE IN IMMACULATE SHAPE....
THESE SCALES COULD BE AS EARLY AS COLONIAL PERIOD. IT IS DIFFICULT TO DATE PRECISELY.
THIS SCALE IS A GENUINE ANTIQUE ENGLISH OR AMERICAN MADE. IT IS ABSOLUTELY AN D UNEQUIVOCALLY NOT ONE OF THOSE COMMON MORE RECENT (I.E. MODERN) EXAMPLES OUT OF ASIA.
THE SCALES ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION OVERALL, AS IS THE CASE GIVEN ITS AGE.THE LEATHER IS INTACT AND THE TEXT "FINE APOTHECARY SCALES" IS STILL CLEARLY LEGIBLE IN PERIOD LETTERING.
THE BRASS SWING UP DOOR OPENS TO REVEAL A SMALL COLLECTION OF GRAM WEIGHTS. THE SMALLISH ALUMINUM DISC WEIGHTS ARE LATER TO THE SET. 
A VERY FINE EXAMPLE.
Most items are photographed in natural outdoor sunlight when possible. As such any dark areas in the images are shadows or shady areas unless otherwise stipulated. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS BY USPS REGISTERED MAIL OR INSURED PRIORITY MAIL ONLY TO ENSURE SAFEST AND MOST SECURE DELIVERY. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING! REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN IF ITEM IS RETURNED WITHIN 5 DAYS BUT ONLY IF SAID ITEM IS MISREPRESENTED IN DESCRIPTION. RETURN SHIPPING IS RESPONSIBILITY OF BUYER. PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 3 DAYS FROM AUCTION CLOSE UNLESS AGREED TO OTHERWISE IN WRITING. I ACCEPT PAYPAL FOR PURCHASES. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND FOR YOUR INTEREST AND ATTENTION. A NOTE ABOUT FEEDBACK AND THE DETAILED SELLER RATING SYSTEM: THIS SYSTEM IS GEARED TOWARD PROVIDING BUYERS WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE DEALING EXPERIENCE, WHICH I AS A SELLER CERTAINLY CONDONE. THE SYSTEM HOWEVER IS BIASED AND INACCURATE; ALTHOUGH A RATING OF 4 IS SAID TO BE GOOD; IN REALITY AN OVERALL SELLER RATING OF 4 WILL CAUSE THAT SELLERS ACCOUNT TO BE SUSPENDED. THEREFORE, I ASK THAT YOU PLEASE LEAVE 5'S IN ALL CATEGORIES FOR OUR TRANSACTIONS OR CONTACT ME TO PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FELT WAS NOT 100% SATISFACTORY. WHILE MANY BUYERS ARE UNAWARE OF THIS, THE DSR RATING AFFECTS SUCH SELLER ASPECTS AS HOW THE LISTINGS ARE PRESENTED, OUR ABILITY TO LIST ITEMS AT ALL; OUR FEE SCHEDULE FOR LISTING ITEMS, AND OTHER SUCH FACTORS. IT MAY SEEM TRIVIAL TO THE BUYER, BUT TO US AS SELLERS IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. ALSO PLEASE NOTE THAT EBAY CHARGES FEES NOT ONLY ON THE SALE PRICE OF ITEMS BUT ALSO ON SHIPPING CHARGES, SO AS SUCH THE ACTUAL SHIPPING COSTS ON YOUR ITEM MAY SHOW AS A BIT LESS THAN THE CHARGES IN THE DESCRIPTION. THANK YOU. IMPORTANT NOTE: IN RECENT MONTHS BIDDERS HAVE BEGUN HOLDING OFF PLACEMENT OF ANY BIDS UNTIL NEAR AUCTION END. THIS PRESENTS A PROBLEM FOR US SELLERS AS THERE IS NO WAY TO PREDICT WHAT ITEMS MAY OR MAY NOT SELL. AS A RESULT I REGULARLY END AUCTIONS ON ITEMS THAT HAVE LITTLE OR NO BIDS SO AS TO OFFER THESE ITEMS AT LIVE ANTIQUE SHOWS AND FAIRS. AS SUCH, IF YOU HAVE SINCERE INTEREST IN ONE OF MY AUCTION FORMAT LISTINGS THEN I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU PLACE AT LEAST A MINIMUM BID TO ENSURE THAT THIS ITEM WILL NOT BE PULLED FROM AUCTION WITHOUT WARNING. OTHERWISE, YOU MAY WELL BE DISAPPOINTED LATER WHEN YOU DO DECIDE TO ENTER A BID ONLY TO FIND THAT THE AUCTION HAS CLOSED AND THAT THE ITEM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
