the old way of adding numbers...using a timber abacus

no pressing wrong numbers with this calculator,
a timber abacus from my childhood era i think.
 a set of avery balance scales with weights
 the only makers stamp on the back of this beautiful
blue, white and gold trimmed platter, is ITALY itis such a rich blue
it reminds me of English Meakin.
 have not had these before, a set of brass saucepans.
 a cash tin with an ornate lid for extra storage :-)
