I have been looking for one of these antique scales for a long time. Most of the ones I found on Ebay were out of my price range. We were at a flea Market in Lancaster when I came across this one! At first I wasn't sure if the color would work in my kitchen ( I was looking for a white one) but for the 22.00 price tag, I wasn't going to let it go. I brought it home and the color was perfect- In fact, I think I love it even more than a white one.
