English Jockey Scale


From the website:


English Jockey Scale


Fine carved oak with tufted leather seat, rope twist legs, and a built-in scale, all in excellent condition.

These scales were used at English race tracks to determine the jockey's weight.

Made by the famed firm of Henry Pooley & Sons circa 1890.

41"H x 32"W x 22"D.




Note: you don't have to be a jockey to use it.
