Persinware kitchen scales [sold]

Persinware No 14 household scale
made in Australia, c.1950s

This set of kitchen scales is made of steel that has been enameled. It weighs items up to 14 pounds using 1 ounce increments [you can tell a reproduction Persinware scale by the fact that it has both imperial and metric measures- the metric scale was introduced into Australia in the early 70s.] Up to recently these scales have been hard at work in my own kitchen- and they are still accurate [I tested them against a new-fangled digital scale- which though extremely precise is incredibly ugly when compared to this old kitchen scale.]

I have also used the scales as a fruit bowl, or fresh chilli holder. The white enamel bowl makes a great contrast for limes or lemons- or any whole food.
