The trade and and the turnover of goods was very important for major settlements of the viking age. Many finds of scales and weights were also made in the burial fields. They were used to weigh precious metal and coins.
Our reproduction has been made after a find from Gotland (SHM7571:533), completed with an attachment from another find of the same type (SHM12960). In the 10th century the scale pans were assambled with cords of an organic material which did not survive down in the earth.
On special request the scale can be delivered as an unfitted kit or it could be individualized with a 4-point-attachment. Made in real bronze.

Width approx. 16cm, diameter of the scale plates 5,5 cm.
