This brass balance beam scale is approximately 6" in height. The velvet box is approximately 7.25" long by 4" wide. This unique display piece is not meant to be used as an accurate measurement of weight, but as a stunning decor item. The balance beam is easily assembled and disassembled by screwing into the velvet box.
it's a good thing it's a cheap item. Mine came with a broken chain on one of the scales, but seeing the reviews I kind of expected that and mainly got this as a visual aid so I can build my own portable scales, the rest is all usable and the box is nice, so at the very least if I can make my own scales I can have this as a working scale set instead of a piece of decoration. Update: Okay I took the time to check the chain that was broken and was able to fix it by prying it open a little and slipping the links back together and then squeezing it shut again. I don't know exactly how accurate it is with anything but the weights it came with but I have 20 grams per tray (one 20 gram in the right and two 10 gram in the left since it came with two) and it's fairly well balanced to the point that if you weren't paying attention it would seem perfectly balanced but if you look at the pointer there is a very very slight tilt to the 20 gram weight in the right tray. At the least it's a good prop...
Quality not quite up to par. One of the plates arrived tarnished, both have small dents in them. And though I see it now in reexamining the picture, didn't realize that the scale does not stand on its own but needs to be attached to the case for display. Other vendors call it out explicitly. Note the case is much more a royal purple and not blue as described, in my opinion. Plan to return.
Scale is as shown, looks nice enough. I received a duplicate 10gm weight which had nowhere to go in the case, annoying but not the end of the world. Metal pieces had some sharp edges, was originally going to give as a gift but decided against it mostly because of this. Scales are connected together and stand screws into the case itself, not ideal for showing off and can sometimes get tangled into itself. Not very precise, favors one side but still looks nice.
