In the jeweler's trade perfect balance is essential. The fine line between profit and loss depends upon accuracy and exact measurements. To achieve this a vast variety of instruments have been devised, including this ingenious bronze weight. To hold this weight is to feel its delicate heaviness that is very satisfying. It's size and lovely balance made it easy to carry around as a portable device of wonderful simplicity and absolute reliability. On the fourteen sides are engraved a complex series of slashes and dots that may be decoration, or have a mathematical significance. In either case the effect of this esoteric script heightens the beauty and adds a mystical element to the weighing of precious metals and gems. - (FZ.352)
