    I got this at a small shop and I believe that it's a bathroom scale. You stand with one foot on either side on the platforms and it is measured in stones. It measures approx 9 W x 9 D x 11 H and is made of mostly cast iron I think. It doesn't have a name on it. Just a Pat number (pat 27075) and I think maybe a registration number (R 637506). I've tried looking up these numbers but no luck.
    If anyone can help with more information on this item I would be very great full.
    Kind regards Elaine

      hi i have acquired this same scale. are they worth trying to re calibrate? does anyone have an estimate of its worth. mine looks nearly the same, but i have worn leather footrests. thanks

      Hello did you manage to get anymore information re the scale? Do you know the year off manufacture? I am based in Ireland and this is a perfect match to a scale that I have. Looking forward to hearing from you. Regards Paddy
