© AP6.0ANTIQUE SEEDERER KOHLBUSCH SEKO ANALYTICAL BALANCE SCALE
This sale is for an antique Seeder Kohlbusch Inc/ SeKo glass and wood encased balance scale as you see pictured sold by Arthur H Thomas Co of Philadelphia PA. I don't know a ton about this sort of item so please ask questions if you have any. From what I can see - this is considered an Analytical balance scale and is probably from the 1930's or earlier based on the design and age with a retail price of around $250.00 back in 1936 (catalog price). Based on that rate and using 1936 for a year of build date...a quick inflation calculator puts that figure at $3921.85 in today's prices!!
This antique balance scale is sold as-is and as you see pictured. I sadly, have no clue if its in tune or not. It comes with a few weights (and a tin that has some very small and very thing ultra light weights. Also found in the drawer that wasn't pictured was a bunch of empty tins which are also included. It does have a little damage...it looks like the top part is missing a piece of wood at the top where there is a gap between the glass the front. Both front and back have sliding access doors. The back slides all the way out. The front is on some sort of pulley system with strings attached I believe as it will hold open at desired height until you push it back up or down again. Besides the wood piece missing on top - I would have to say its in excellent condition. Overall size is 17" across, 18" tall and 9.75" deep.
Due to the weight and size of the item - it will be shipped via Fedex. I'll will try to tape down any moving parts and anything that is loose will be wrapped up.
