Bronze weight for Viking folding scale - 4 grams.

Here you can buy an authentic replica of a weight for Viking folding scales, which was made according to historical models from the 9th to 10th century.

This scale weight in the form of a so-called cuboctahedron corresponds quite exactly to the original bronze weights of the Viking Age and measures 0.8 x 0.8 cm and weighs about 4 grams. Link to original Viking weights...

Kuboktaedic scale weights are first attested for the Viking Age in the second half of the 9th century and spread throughout the entire Baltic region.

To weigh, a Viking scale was filled with hack silver or silver coins in one pan and balanced on the other side with the appropriate counterweights until the pointer of the scale aligned in the middle.

To use the Viking scales properly, you can buy other bronze weights with about 2 grams, 6 grams and 8 grams in addition to this Viking weight with about 4 grams.



Bronze weights for scales usually came in three different forms in the Viking Age:

Cubooctahedron weights had the shape of cubes with truncated corners, the square faces of the cube having a line or row of dots on the edge and the weight value of the weight being indicated with small circles or dot eyes.

Spherical zone weights
had the shape of spheres flattened on both sides, the edges of which were provided with rows of decorative dots. To indicate the value, circular patterns or curved lines were used in the middle of the area.

Double-zone weights
resembled the spherical Viking weights, but they had a conical shape instead of a spherical shape and became more common at the transition from the 10th to the 11th century.
