Printer's pre-digital ink scale.
Includes a spirit level set into the body of the scales to ensure accuracy of measurements. Has 2 sliding scales: up to 1000g in 100g increments; and up to 100g in 1/2g increments. The weights are attached to a sliding bar. There is a needle on a dial with a read-off mark but no scale indicated. The two scale plates are different: a flat tin plate on the one side and a smaller, cork covered plate on the other.
