STANTON INSTRUMENTS LTD
WORLD LEADERS IN BALANCE DESIGN AND 
WEIGHT MAKING BETWEEN 1946 AND 1968

Probably the most comprehensive collection of scales and weights in the UK used to be the museum at the Avery Weigh-Tronix headquarters (Soho Foundry, Birmingham).

In addition to showcasing Avery products from across the history of this once-great firm the collection also presented the art of weighing and scale-making in all its facets, uniquely located at one of the centres of the industrial revolution.

 

Sadly this museum is now defunct. As of mid-2015 it is not clear what will become of the collection.

   

These pictures give a quick overview of how it looked in around 2002/3.
