This is a really cute little toy scale, and a good example of nickel plating. You can actually move the sliding weight, and the extra weights appear to be lead just as they should be. The seller represented that it was probably late 1800's or early 1900's, I have no reason to doubt that, not that I know anything about antique toys.
