Item - Antique Early Victorian Cast Iron 7lbs Avery Shop Bar Weight, Circa 1830-50; this is a rather unusual example, as most of this type of weight have straight sides... whilst this example has a lovely curved and fluted design (please see pics).
The weight also features a copper plug and two verification marks to the underside that appear to be crossed anchors (see pics), though we have not been able to identify which town/county used this mark.
This weight would make a lovely unusual door stop or alternatively a super addition to a weights & measures collection.
