Salter Hughes Family Scales No 48

Wiki says: “The Salter firm began life in the late 1760s in the village of Bilston, England when Richard Salter, a spring maker, began making the first spring scales in Britain.[1] He called these scales “pocket steelyards“, though they work on a different principle from steelyard balances. By 1825 his nephew George had taken over the company, which became known as George Salter & Co. George later established a manufacturing site in the town of West Bromwich, about 4 miles (7 km) from Bilston. West Bromwich Albion football club was formed from workers at this works site. From here the company produced a wide variety of scales including the UK’s first bathroom scales. Other items were added to the range, including irons, mincers, potato chippers, coin-operated machines and the first typewriters made in the UK.[1][2][3].The business thrived throughout the 1900s, and by 1950 it employed over 2,000 people, still in the same area and owned by the same family.
