Weights are placed directly onto the stand. They have been used but there are very few inoffensive wear marks to the paintwork. There is some reflection in the photographs. Discolouration in the brass bowl.Brass is soft and when potentially corrosive stuff, like salt, is placed in the bowl and not wiped clean a reaction happens and the surface of the brass is affected. Sometimes it can be almost all removed but it rather depends on how long the stuff was left in there. Almost every bowl I come across has some similar marks. They are a nice size, 10 wide and 7.5 high, not taking up too much room on your worktop. The quality BRASS BELL weights comprise.... You may be concerned that they have to be sent such a long way but I can assure you there is no need. I use large sturdy boxes and pack all the spaces so they remain rigid. The scales are wrapped in large bubble wrap and bound with tape so they do not move about. The weights are packed separately also in large bubble wrap.
