Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
This is a set of roman scales in perfect working order, complete with the weight and hooks. Hand-forged Iron old French market scales from the 1920's. Originally used in French markets for weighing meat, fruit, vegetables etc.
The iron bar is calibrated on both sides, one side is 0 - 4 kilos, calibrated in small gradations for light weight goods, the other side is 4 kilos - 16 kilos for heavier items. To change from one side of the bar to the other, you simply turn the balance upside down and hang using the opposite hook.
To weigh something you hang it on the hook then move the weight on the calibrated arm until it's balanced, then you can read the weight on the arm.
I will send this to you with the vintage iron bracket that you see in the photos ready for hanging.
It would look fabulous in any rustic farmhouse kitchen or converted barn living space, a real 'talking point' and practical at the same time!
