Berkel scale

Berkel scale
Berkel scales were very common in the shops in the Netherlands. The sentence "Niet voor handelsdoeleinden" means "Not for trading purposes", which means that the scale is not officially tested by the Weights and Measurements institute.

Statenvertaling:
"Dit nu is de schrift, die daer geteeckent is MENE MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. Dit is de uytlegginge deser woorden. MENE, Godt heeft u Coninckrijke getelt, ende hy heeft er voleyndet. TEKEL, Ghy zijt in weegschalen gewogen, ende ghy zijt te licht gevonden. PERES, U Koninckrijke is verdeylt, ende 't is den Meden ende den Persen gegeven."
