Christian Becker analytical balance

This is an analytical balance scale used in the 1920s for weighing small amounts of chemicals in the Arkansas Lime business.  It is a Christian Becker analytical balance, in a wood and glass case that stands 19 inches tall by 16 inches wide and 9 inches deep.  In the drawer underneath the sale there are four black devices.  Inside the cabinet is an aluminum container for holding lime powder to be measured and a corresponding weight.     This artifact is part of the Arkansas Lime Company Collection at Old Independence Regional Museum.
