Ancient Chair Scale

Chair Scale at Zum Goldenen Hirschen (Apotheke) in Vienna
Recently I’ve done a lot of other things than posting here. I thank Julia profoundly for keeping the blog afloat in the meantime.

Last week I was in Vienna where I had discovered this Chair Scale in a pharmacy on a former trip. I took a photo and that was horribly unfocused. This time I was able to take a better one with the kind permission of the apothecary.

Apotheke Zum Goldene Hirschen
The pharmacy has a long history. I doesn’t seem to have a website, but it does have a (German)Wikipedia entry under it’s impressive name Zum Goldenen Hirschen (Apotheke)

  3. I can’t believe it. I was just browsing around blogs in my break and I came across this. I’ve actually been to this store and saw this chair. I don’t know why but it’s made me really happy to see it here. Holiday memories I guess!
