This scale is in beautiful condition. The face of the scale shows minimal damage though there is some discoloration near the bottom. The shiny metal housing is scratched in only a few places. Capacity: 25 lbs.; it is quite accurate. Note the hairline fractures along the top plate. An adhesive has been added to the bottom of the plate for reinforcement. Height: 8"; width at bottom: 6-5/8"; depth: 5.75".

In 1888, the Hanson Scale Company was founded in Chicago, IL, making light industrial scales. The small workshop gradually grew. In order to save costs plus establish a European base, Hanson set up a manufacturing plant in Ireland. The Hanson name became and still is a very key and important brand in the UK market. Hansen Scale was eventually sold in the 1960’s. $ 42.50
