Before digital scales and pre-packaged fare, traders in village markets would weigh goods on a balance scale with cast iron weights. Each was was clearly marked, but trickery was not uncommon. Hollow weights could send you home with less than you paid for!
These replica balance scale weights are fashioned from cast iron, each with 3 lb molded into the lid. We think they make for exceptionally unique votive candles.
Each holds 2.5oz of soy blend wax and burns about 12 hours. When finished, you can easily replenish with a tealight candle for a lifetime of enjoyment. Click on the details tab above for more information.
