Vintage Meat Barrel Scale Computing Scale Company Dayton Ohio 1917 Antique

***Denver pick-up only***

Oh, I just love this piece! Tons of weathering from being outdoor display for many years, it is perfect in the garden or patio. Or, it could be lovingly restored.

Huge and heavy, it stands 29" Tall X 19" Wide X 19" Deep and must weigh 80 pounds!

Beveled glass, front and back with a beveled mirror on one end of the barrel. Surely, the other end had a mirror as well, but it is long gone. Kinda cool, though, because you can see inside where all the mechanics and paper cylinder are. Only one piece of glass is broken, in the back. (See 4th photo) Otherwise, no chips, cracks or breaks in any of the other glass. The little window on the front is rusted shut.
Paper cylinder is rumpled and crumpled with age and weathering and there is no plate.

Not working, but could be restored or displayed as is
