A set of 5 brass weights, from 1 kilogram to 50 grams. Not quite sure why they are in kilos, as England measured in pounds and ounces - however, they all have Standard stamps, and the 1 kilo has 42 stamps on its sides, and one on the top. Four other types of marks also, underneath. Maybe these are from Continental Europe. The stamps have letters in shields, and the last few are numbers, being 84, 88, 90 and 92. The 500 gram weight has four marks, again letters, then numbers, ending at 92. Underneath are the initials WR. This weight is quite scarred. The 200 gram weight has 10 marks, ending in 86. Also has WR underneath. The 100 gram weight has only a B mark. Underneath is DS. The little 59g weight has a hole in the side, and only one stamp. (It weights correctly 50g). Underneath is a monogram of the letters AJ, and 39. Wooden box has a split, which would respond well to gluing and clamping. All weights have lovely feel of their age. Obviously, this would not be light for postage!
