    Just got this at an auction. I just love the color and the size. It's just under 3 feet tall so it's a nice size for inside the house. Pretty heavy though.

    I can't find any Howe scales like it online anywhere. Does anyone have more info on it? Age or what it was used for?

    Seems like the valuable Howe scales are older grocery/counter top ones.

      Thanks. I was thinking along the lines of butcher scale too. Unfortunately, I broke the glass in the globe when I was loading it into my car :(

      I might have it replaced.. or may not.
