Shopping for vintage scales

Vintage scales can have real presence in your home – not least because they tend to be extremely heavy items. Typically they are made with metal, enamel or a combination of both. The range of metals can alter significantly from mainstream stainless-steel ones to brass ones by the likes of G. P. Heath & Son. The types of designs can vary from balancing scales, top-loading scales and hanging scales. The latter two designs usually have a dial, so you can record the weight easily.

As these scales are vintage and can be decades old, you can expect to see some signs of their age and previous use. These marks can add character and charm to the item rather than detract from their value. Most people will identify these imperfections as evidence of authenticity and will know your scales are not a counterfeit.

Why shop for vintage scales?

So, why get a pair of vintage scales? What are the benefits? There are many perks to purchasing vintage scales. First of all, these scales are typically very accurate and it can also be incredibly satisfying to weigh out ingredients in a traditional way, just as it is fun to stick to old cooking and baking principles in spite of modern gadgets and gizmos.

Vintage scales may even become an investment. Some vintage items do become rarer as time passes and can increase in value. You’ll need to do some research to buy vintage scales that give you the best chance of making a return on your money.

Adding some vintage scales doesn’t require you to already have a vintage theme ongoing or transform your modern style to a vintage style. You can add vintage scales in your kitchen right next to your modern digital appliances without issues. The contrast between them will make the scales stand out even more and catch the eye of every guest – just as any ornament would do. In the same breath, vintage items are not part of a trend and will not go out of fashion; they’re timeless additions unlike more modern fads.
