This rare walking stick contains a spring-loaded scale hidden inside the shaft for weighing silver, gold, and other precious metals and stones. The cane handle unscrews to reveal a Salter spring scale, a popular design that utilizes Hooke's law of elasticity discovered in 1660. Designed by George Salter and Co. of West Bromwich, the brass scale is calibrated for troy ounces, making it the perfect tool for the professional jeweller (Source: M.S. Rau Antiques)
