Here we have a LARGE and BEAUTIFUL really ORNATE vintage GOLDPLATED metal weight scale with a 3/4 THICK MARBLE BASE! It has a BEAUTIFUL large CHERUB or PUTTI holding onto the center twisted post and 2 CRYSTAL GLASS low bowls (or plates) suspended from the horizontal holder by gold tone chains.Plus a 1 1/8 thick FACETED CRYSTAL GLASS RING under the cherub! There are 5 PEAR SHAPED CUT GLASS CRYSTAL DROPS hanging from the bobeche!
The crystal bowls have a bullseye pattern around the edge with a large star in the center with elongated bullseyes between the rays. VERY ORNATE with what appears to be bunches of 3 dimensional grapes and leaves above the marble base. There are 2 more bunches of grapes hanging from the horizontal arm that is holding the chains that are holding the crystal plates. It measures 16 5/8" tall, 17 1/2" plate to plate rim and 5 5/8 diameter at the base. This was made in Italy and was by Catco as there was a tag that noted that on the center of one of the crystal plates and I cannot find it now.This is for display as the scale does not actually work. EXCELLENT condition with no cracks, chips or missing pieces. GOLD PLATE IS FAR BETTER IN PERSON THAN MY PHOTOS FOR SOME REASON! Shows like it did when new!! I also have another scale on that is almost all marble! You can see it in the last photo. Please see my other auctions for more BEAUTIFUL and UNIQUE items!
