Persinware scales

Persinware kitchen scalesPersinware #710 domestic scales
made in Australia, c.1960s

This pair of metal scales come with their original plastic measuring bowls- an elongated oval in dark green, and an apple-green rounded bowl with pouring lip. The white enamel is a little scuffed in places, evidencing their role in the kitchens of Australia for the last fifty-or so- years. Both scales are still accurate [I have tested them against a modern digital scale] and weigh things up to ten pounds, by 1 oz increments. The scales have an adjusting knob on the back, to allow for the weight of the bowl itself.

These are not reproduction scales: they are authentic 60s scales. Persinware brought out reproduction scales- using exactly the same scale shapes and bowls as these – in the 70s; the tell-tale evidence being the inclusion of kilogram measurements alongside the imperial measurements for the new metric era.

Lemons and limes look particularly good in the green bowls. If green isn’t your colour, I do have a couple of other Persinware scales with red, orange and yellow bowls…

The scales are for sale: $AUD90

The white enamel is a little scuffed in places, evidencing their role in the kitchens of Australia for the last fifty-or so- years. Both scales are still accurate [I have tested them against a digital 2013 scale] and weigh things up to ten pounds, by 1 oz increments. The scales have an adjusting knob on the back, to allow for the weight of the bowl itself.

The elongated oval bowl on the left is now very collectible- as they are becoming increasingly rare.

Lemons and limes look particularly good in the green bowls. The scales make fantastic fruit bowls! If green isn’t your colour, I do have a couple of other Persinware scales with red, orange and yellow bowls…   For sale: $AUD90
