Item/Description:  Vintage ca 1920s-1960s ACCURATELY WORKING Universal Landers, Frary & Clark art deco-style off-white colored metal kitchen scale with capacity to weigh up to 24 lbs in both ounces and pounds.

 

Because it is as aesthetically attractive as it is functional, with its striking Art Deco design, it would make for a divinely decorative display feature that would enhance and add retro character to any environment, whether it be home (farmhouse or shabby cottage/shabby chic decor), business, mercantile establishment or office .

 

And with a capacity to weigh up to 24 pounds in weight (including increments in ounces), it would be quite handy to have around for weighing numerous types of items from postal/Post Office packages & mail, to food/food items, to gardening items, to auto maintenance/mechanical items to...the list is endless!

 

Surprisingly streamlined and compact in size and weight (the scale itself weighs no more than 5 lbs) for its heavy/large weighing/weight capability of up to 24 lbs, it will easily fit on any kitchen counter for ease of access and convenience, as well as any plant shelf or office bookcase.

 

It would also fabulously serve as an educational aid for children, teaching them how much different things weigh (and just envision how fantastic this would look as an interior design feature in any child’s room). 

 

*****An added bonus of this stylish scale is the (painted-on OR transferware) silver & black label on the back side which handily contains useful “Weight Equivalents of One Cup AND “Weights & Measures Conversion Chart” reference information/details regarding common cooking/kitchen ingredients as follows:

***WEIGHT EQUIVALENTS OF ONE CUP:

*Beans, Dry - 8 oz

*Butter 8

*Cheese, Grated - 4.5

*Chocolate - 4

*Cocoa - 4.5

*Dates, Chopped - 5.3

*Flour, Bread - 4

*Fat, Hydrogenated - 8

*Honey or Syrup - 11

*Lard - 8 oz

*Molasses - 11

*Nut Meats - 4

*Orange Juice - 8

*Raisins - 5.5

*Rice - 8

*Sugar, Granulated - 5

***WEIGHTS & MEASURES CONVERSION CHART:

*1 Tablespoon = 3

*1 Cup = 16 Tablespoons

*1 Fluid oz = 2 Tablespoons

*1 Pound = 16 Ounces

*1 Pound = 454 Grams

*1 Pint = 2 Cups

*1 Quart = 2 Pints

*1 Gallon = 4 Quarts

*1 Peck = 4 Quarts

*1 Bushel = 4 Pecks

 

Because of the added bonus of the conversion information for the now primarily obsolete unit of measure termed “pecks and bushels” referenced on this chart, this scale would be invaluable for those who live on or frequent farms and/or orchards and/or heavily rely upon weighing dry goods. 

Here is a little background information concerning “Bushels & Pecks”:  “Now deemed obsolete units of measure, the bushel and the peck are used for measuring dry goods. Dry measures are units of volume used to measure bulk commodities which are not gas or liquid. They are typically used in agriculture, agronomy and commodity markets to measure e.g. vegetables, grain, corn, dried beans and dried as well as fresh fruit (formerly also salt pork and fish). They are also used in fishing for e.g. clams, crabs, etc., and formerly for many other substances such as coal, cement, lime. The words “Bushel & Peck” were even once so commonly used in our ordinary vernacular that they were incorporated into the popular 1950 song entitled “A Bushel and a Peck” written by Frank Loesser and introduced in the Broadway musical “Guys and Dolls”. Many versions of this song were sung/recorded by such famous performing artists as Doris Day, The Andrews Sisters, Perry Como and Johnny Desmond, to name but a few (it was even used as recently as 2002 in “Veggie Tales”).

 

***PLEASE NOTE:  Though the scale is currently properly starting at “Zero”/“0" weight, it may need to be re-calibrated post-shipping (re-calibration is very simple with this scale).
