Antique Inspector Weights Set
I stumbled upon a truly beautiful set of these weights today at an antique shop after engaging the Dutch owner about our mutual engineering backgrounds and studies. Not knowing much about their origin, I was intrigued at the quality of the set and the impressive number of hallmarks and overall finish which certainly seemed to enhanced the overall significance of this find greatly.
After research, I believe these to be a high quality traveling set of inspector weights. Is this correct?
Please examine the photos of the 13 weights and advise on their history, hallmarks, purpose and potential origin if possible. All weights carry hallmarks on their top side and base. The larger ones carry a litany of hallmarks down the side as well. Additionally, the largest (1KG) weight has the initials FP & G.R with a ton of hallmarks on the top.
Let me know if you need any additional photos.
Thanks for any and all info!!!
