Slovak term or phrase:tára
...tára so stojanom na ručné váhy...
(description of an item found in an old pharmacy building)
I'm guessing that "tára" is cognate to English "tare" and refers to a container or platform of a known weight used to hold material being weighed on a scale.
So, the whole phrase would be "set of scales with a stand for manual weighing" but I feel like I'm missing something... perhaps "tára" refers to the counterweights used on a scale, protiváhy?
