Measurements: 16” long x 7” deep x 14” tall. The weights are in a small box within the drawer. Two slots are empty where the weights are missing. The Troemner name etched on the side of the box of weights. The front door slides up so it can be taken off but it was originally set with a small chord that went over a small pulley and attached to a weight that would allow the door to be lifted open and stay open. The pulleys and weights are still there but the chord needs to be re-strung.
Grand Aunt had this in her possessions and gave it to me.
