|Seller Notes:||“Reasonable vintage condition with surface rust to metal parts, worst on green metal base, and some discolouration to the metal back. Some stains on front plastic. (Please check detailed photos supplied.) The numbers/markers for Lbs and Ounces are still very clear, even though there are small spots of minor rust here and there. The adjuster knob works well.”|

RETRO VINTAGE SET OF GREEN CREAM KITCHEN SCALES (Metal and ? Bakelite Plastic)
Made In Australia
Up for auction is this lovely old set of Persinware Kitchen Scales. They are of a cream/yellowish colour, with a green metal base. The front seems to be made from a bakelite type plastic, but the rest is all metal. The green base is metal, and so is the back section. The adjuster knob is a good solid metal and the actual weighing apparatus and the dish which is screwed into it, are also metal. On the front is printed "CULINARY", "Persinware" in cursive script, and "Made in Australia".
The scales seem to be in working condition, but whether or not they are accurate, I cannot tell, with the weight measurements being in lbs and ounces. The adjustment knob definitely moves well and adjusts as it should.
Condition: As described above, the metal is suffering surface rust, with the green base being th worse. However, the mid green paint is still there in many places, and not too bad at all on the underside on the base. The cream metal back has some patches of discolouration and some spot surface rust here and there. The weighing dish also has some spots of surface rust. The surface rust actually adds to the authentic aged look and is quite attractive.
**Please note that the weighing dish is secured by a screw and nut, and this dish will be unscrewed and removed for transit by post. The screw and nut will be packed in with the dish and is easy to insert and screw up again.**
A lovely Set to use or to add to your Decor!
