Grading of eggs by weight began about 1900 as a way of selecting the ideal size egg for hatching purposes.

Early “egg graders” were preset to select eggs of a certain weight.  

Since poultry farmers were paid a premium for graded eggs, these were a standard item on many farms.

Farmers graded eggs to sell to retailers as a source of cash, thus perpetuating the need for egg scales.

Most egg scales were invented and manufactured between 1920 and 1940, which makes this a highly covetable item.

These scales are on a black metal base with brass egg cup, weight & fittings.

Size - 25cm long.
