Unusual Set of Brass Weights
An unusual set of brass weights.
There are 7 barrel shaped weights, each stamped with a number from 1 to 7.
They fit into a circular brass holder with 7 holes, each also numbered from 1 to 7.
We have weighed each of the weights on digital scales and all appear to have been accurately manufactured to specific weights, as follows:
No.1: 21/8 ounces
No.2: 21/4 ounces
No.3: 21/2 ounces
No.4: 25/8 ounces
No.5: 23/4 ounces
No.6: 3 ounces
No.7: 31/4 ounces
Each weight is approximately 11/8 inches tall.
The circular holder is 3 inches in diameter and 11/16 inch thick.
An interesting set and, as yet, purpose unknown.
