I was so happy to find a vintage double-pan scale at a local Magazine Street shop recently. I stared at it for about six months, and it finally became mine a few weeks ago.
The scale itself is cast iron and features two original brass pans.
I knew that the moment I carried it home that it would be a perfect compliment to the parlor mantle.
I am having a ball accessorizing the pans with glass orbs, minerals, pottery, clams, and even flowers.
As a science educator, I have an affinity for vintage measuring devices.
Now, I need your ideas. How would you accessorize the brass pans of the scale? Any ideas are appreciated. I prefer found objects, but any ideas are “good” ideas.
Vintage scale, y’all!
