Now why on Earth would you want to weigh an egg? To grade it of course. The heavier the egg, the higher the price. This Multiplo egg grader was just the shot for the task. From the 1920s poultry farmers and inspectors would use such a device to weigh eggs. They simply popped an egg on one side to reveal the weight, in ⅛ of an ounce increments. Morawa woman Phyllis Lloyd used this particular egg grader in the 1950s when selling eggs to people in Morawa.
