Set of 4 weights for a Viking scale.

Here you can buy authentic replicas of Viking weights for a folding scale, which were made according to historical models from the 9th to 10th centuries.

These detailed scale weights in form correspond absolutely exactly to original bronze weights of the Viking Age and weigh exactly 2, 4, 6 and 10 grams each. Link to original Viking weights...

Viking-period folding scales can be traced back to the second half of the 9th century and soon spread throughout the entire Baltic region.

Of course, the use of scales also required corresponding weights. Thus, in the course of the flow of silver from the Arabian regions, scales were brought to the north along with the folding scales.

For weighing, the folding scales were filled with minced silver or silver coins in one weighing pan and balanced with the respective bronze weights on the other side until the pointer of the scales was aligned in the middle.

To make perfect use of these Viking weights, you can of course also buy a detailed replica of a Viking folding scale from us.

In addition to the set, you can also buy the individual Viking weights with 2 Gramm, 4 Gramm, 6 Gramm and 10 Gramm.



Of course, in the Viking Age, the use of a scale also required appropriate weights. Thus, together with folding scales, corresponding scale weights also reached the north in the course of the silver flow from the Arabian regions.

Weights for Viking scales usually came in three different forms:

Cubooctahedron weights had the shape of cubes with cut-off corners, where the square cube faces had a line or row of dots on the edge and small punched circles or dot eyes showed the weight value of the scale weight.

Ball zone weights were in the shape of spheres, the top and bottom of which were flattened and had rows of decorative dots around the edge. Again, circular patterns or curved lines in the centre of the area were used to indicate the value. I

Double-zone weights were quite similar to the spherical Viking weights, but had a conical shape rather than a spherical one, and appeared more frequently at the transition from the 10th to the 11th century.

It is astonishing that despite the lack of centralized authority among the Vikings, the standardization of uniform units of weight prevailed. Nevertheless, many Viking weights made of lead also show the use of personal weight systems of the respective merchants.

The early Viking weights were still made of iron covered with a thin skin of bronze or another copper alloy, which was intended to prevent the weights from being manipulated. Towards the end of the 10th century, standardized scale weights were increasingly made entirely of a copper alloy, such as bronze.
