Complete brass nested-weight set, eight pieces with case, marked 1715 on lid and inside, English? 829 grams, 1-1/2" tall, 3" diameter. Whimsical intact weight set with two dates (one in the bottom of the receptacle and crown above it), ornate engraved crowns and jumble of letters on top of lid, handle made of two animals (squirrels?) grasping a nut, and hasp made of same animal, an attractive example of a typical artifact.
