Antique Scale made by Fairbanks. It has the sliding weight system on top as seen in pictures. In 1823, Thaddeus Fairbanks started a foundry in St Johnsbury to manufacture two of his inventions, a cast iron stove and a cast iron plow. The next year his brother, Erastus, joined him and they named their company "E & T Fairbanks Company". In 1830 they applied for a patent and immediately began manufacturing their first scale, a revolutionary different platform scale. It would turn out to be incredibly successful and the first of many, many new scale innovations. Even before the start of the Civil War, when the youngest brother Joseph joined the Company, Fairbanks Scales may have been the most recognized American product in the world. Then, only a few years after the Civil War, Fairbanks was making over 4,000 scales a year and supplying them throughout the world. They even had licensing agreements and manufacturing plants in several countries. By 1882 it was producing more than 80,000 scales annually and by 1897 they held more than 113 scale related patents and manufactured more than 10,000 different models.
