Maker and Role

Production Date
Set of Chemists scales in glass case. This scale is an analytical balance which would have been used to measure mass to a very high degree of precision. The balance was kept in a glass case so that dust did not collect, and so that any current in the room did not affect the delicate balance. These types of balance scales are often used in laboratories.
