Co. of Yonkers and meant for pharmacies and candy stores.

Also has a seal certifying that it has been approved by the New Jersey Department of Weights and Measures so you know it's honest. A very attractive scale. From the Dennis Fisher collection.

Silver trowel with ivory handle, 13" long, and rosewood mallet, 7". The blade of the trowel is inscribed "Presented to F.L. Fothergill, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Guardians, On the Occasion of His Laying the Foundation Stone of the Chapel at the Dewsbury Union Workhouse Nov. 7th 1902." There are several hallmarks on the reverse side to tell you how fine the silver is and who made it. The turned rosewood mallet is unmarked, but with a Victorian coin mounted in the head and a silver ring around the handle. The tools are in the original fitted, plush-lined case. The idea of providing the dignitaries who presided at this type of ceremony with elaborate ceremonial "tools", as if they'd actually do any work, rather than using the money to, say, buy better food for the orphans at the workhouse, is one of those charming customs that made the Victorian Era so picturesque, and gave Charles Dickens so much material. Dewsbury, in west Yorkshire, had a workhouse at least since the 1770s.

One handle is a Millers Falls handle, 5-1/2" with rosewood handle, in a 6-1/2" x 3-1/2" box with an intact label in the lid reading "Family Tool Chest No. 2", manufactured by Millers Falls. There are a number of small bits in a wooden rack, and several larger blades for a chisel, saw, prybar, etc. Since the tool handle doesn't have a hollow handle to store the tools, it was presumably made for this set. The box also includes a second rosewood tool handle, unmarked but looks like a J.S. Fray, with a full set of tools in its handle. We're not familiar with this particular set, but it looks like the MF handle belongs here and the Fray was just stored in the same box. In any case, you get them both.
