|Salter's Spring Balance Scale|
SALTER HOUSEWARES itself began life in the late 1700S in the village of Bilston, England. At this time Richard Salter, a spring maker, began making 'pocket steelyards', a scale similar to the fisherman's scale of today.
By 1825 his nephew George had taken over the company, which became known as GEORGE SALTER & CO. and later established a large, well equipped manufacturing site in the town of West Bromwich.
The brass face reads:
