Rare & Complete Set of 8 x 17th Century Spanish Antique Bronze Nesting Apothecary Weights or Bucket Weights

A cased set of eight 17th century graduated bronze apothecary weights, each weight resting within the next, all bearing marks and encased inside the hinged master cup bearing various stamped marks including that of the number "16" and an S".

The smallest weight, also known as a "pill" is not necessarily intended solely as a measure of weight, but rather to keep the remaining weights securely in place within the master cup, therefore preventing them from rattling.

Provenance - From the private collection of a weights and measures collector in South-East Yorkshire, England.

Condition - good overall. The master cup has built up a lovely patina over the centuries on the external surface. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Master Cup Height 4.45 cm x Max Diameter to the outer edge of the clasp 5.71 cm (1 3/4" x 2 1/4")
