A Little Scaley

Hello, Dear Ones! I thought I would share with you a little something I found in a thrift shop in England.
Don't you just love her? This was just the cutest little scale and I had to have her! I dressed her up with some faux fruit. I think she looks lovely.
This is an old balance weight scale made in England but the weights are in ounces and pounds! The tray, or scoop, looks like a big scoop, is copper. I haven't cleaned her up yet and will treat the cast iron weights like I do my skillets - rub em down with shortening and bake em up a bit.
 Here you can see the copper or maybe it's brass.
Well, my little olden scale is feeling right at home sitting here on my island in the kitchen. Mr. Precious started poking his bananas in the scoop and I told him, no, no, Nannette! Sorry, this scale is not a banana boat! :) Men!


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Day-O (Banana Boat Song)
