Retro EKS kitchen scale

Retro EKS kitchen scale

This 1960s kitchen scale by Swedish company, EKS, was a real find! It’s in absolutely mint condition, having never been used before. I bought it from a deceased estate where clearly the departed had a bit of a hoarding problem – I think we counted five vacuum cleaners still in their original boxes (I can only assume that she had a friend who worked for Hoover!). But I’m not complaining because it’s so rare to find a kitchen scale in this type of condition – normally they’re covered in grease, or missing half their paint, or both! But this one looks brand-spanking new – whoop! And in addition to being in great nick, it’s a quality scale made by a company that still produces kitchen scales some 70 years after they started.

A super handsome scale that will look fantastic sitting on your kitchen counter.

Dimensions: 30cm wide x 17cm deep x 9.5cm tall

Price: R280
