Can you guess what this is?


This amazing piece just came into the store. Can you guess what it is? Don't worry I didn't have the foggiest when I first saw it.  It is ... a railway luggage scale! Used for weighing grain, luggage and dairy products up to 2000 pounds. Made by Renfrew & Co, circa 1890 it is a really beautiful and functional piece of Canadian history. I think it would make the most beautiful coffee table. What do you think?
We even have the original weights, you can see them by the legs.
This would be the perfect remote holder!
If you have managed to read the new Restoration Hardware (it is encyclopedia sized!) you would have spotted a similar items priced from $995 - $1245. Did I mention ours is only $375.00!
