Vintage Scales

I have a thing for vintage kitchen scales. Not sure why exactly but ever since I started my hobby of treasure hunting, they just seem to call to me. Perhaps it is the lovely combo of being pretty and functional? You gotta appreciate that. Whatever it is, I just found one that I love. In the tiny town of Ennis, Montana, I discovered this beauty, hidden among the dusty relics of an antique store…

It’s a Hanson Farmhouse Scale model 2000 that was manufactured in the 1940′s. It works perfectly and although I adore it, I decided to list in my shoppe.

To soothe my inevitable separation anxiety, I combed the internet to round-up some more gorgeous scales…

See why I’m a sucker for them? So lovely and old.

Okay off to bed…so I can dream about more vintage pretties…

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

  1. these are lovely, I can certainly see why you love them. I am feeling a renewed respect for my mother’s vintage scales… as a child I struggled with using them as they predated the metric system (I’m in Australia), I love them now, cracked bowl and all.
