We found this old rusty scale in a tiny house about 60 miles north of the Atlanta area. It was nearly rusted into the place where it had been set many years ago. Intitially, it was the antique needle on the dial and the fact that it still worked that attracted us. It was not until it was cleaned in preparation for an upcycle that we discovered the brass plaque attached to the face.

King Hardware Co. Atlanta, Georgia

Here's a link to learn more about the founder:

The scale has been thoroughly cleaned and sealed.

We have added a new UL rated keyed socket, 30 watt Edison style bulb, 6 feet of brown cotton twisted cord and a reproduction bakelite button plug. The bottom of the scale was deteriorated around the edges and would not allow it to level. We've added balsa wood "feet" under it...hidden from view.

The original pan is attaced to the scale through the socket's attachment. There is a visible nut and part of the pipe nipple visible...they are silver...are are located where the cotton cord enters the bottom of the tray. Please study the photos to determine your tolerance of this. :)

We've even added about 2 pounds of vintage square nails. They have also been cleaned and sealed to protect them against further corrosion. The nails are simply stacked in the original tray.

This is a rustic beauty!

Approximately 18" H. 30 watt bulb is included. HEAVY.

Please be sure to read my shop policies before purchase.
