Kitchen: Old-Fashioned Scales

Issue 34 · Vintage Revisited · August 20, 2008

Dispatch from my recent trip to England: I first spotted an old-fashioned weighing scale in a kitchen revamped by Ilse Crawford. Since then, they seem to have made a comeback in the UK. RE, my favorite local store in Northumberland, stocks several vintage scales (see below). Conran also carries a great modern update.
