Mid Century Kitchen Utility Scale by Hanson

Mid Century Kitchen Utility Scale by Hanson


Manufactured in the late 1950s or early 1960s by the well-known Hanson Scale Company, this kitchen utility scale is in perfect working order. Its faded white enameled body and scale face are offset by its black enameled removable plate, which still retains its illustrated manufacturer’s sticker giving tips and uses for the tool-- note the encircled price-tag in the lower right hand corner, where the item’s original cost was once printed. This scale is incredibly unique in that this paper sticker remains, despite the heavy use that these kinds of scales endured for decades. Even the face of the scale is in great condition for its use, and the numbers, measurement marks, and letters are all entirely legible. The Hanson logo mark is in the upper center portion of the face and still bears its classic coloring.

The scale is every bit as practical as it was when it was first produced, offering service of up to a 25 pound capacity. Use as described on the weighing plate, for meats, poultry, and food as well as laundry and laundering, for business purposes with mail or equipment. This item is as pleasant to look at as it is to use, and adds that certain touch of retro charm to any kitchen, dining room, general or pharmaceutical store, restaurant or office space. Altogether unique, this scale is timeless in every way.
