The person who sold me this vintage Salter scale seemed to think that it was fairly accurate, but I weighed a tin of tuna with it yesterday and unless my maths is really out (I was converting ounces to grams) I don’t think that I’d be using it for baking anytime soon! But I don’t really mind the fact that it doesn’t work – although it would be really nice if it did – because I mostly bought it for the way that it looks. That 2D scale ‘face’ really appeals to me for some reason, and I don’t even mind the fact that it’s so worn looking. It’s not something that would really go with my decor, but it would look great in the right setting. I’m thinking something like a health or fruit and veggie store, but I’d even go so far as to say that it would work in a modern kitchen, provided it was a very clean space.

A character-filled bit of vintage kitchenalia that will add a bit of charm to your home.
