    Here's another old household scale, likewise probably not a terribly unique model as (like the HANSON example I just showed) a quick look around here found at least one more very much like it that another CW member showed several years ago. The info given in that post suggests (and confirms my guess) that this scale is a little older than my other, likely 1930's-40's.

    It is a "UNIVERSAL HOUSEHOLD SCALE", made by "LANDERS, FRARY & CLARK" of "NEW BRITAIN, CONN." Somewhat more 'worn' than my other in general (just to its dial and paint, that is) it is also slightly more ornate in its design, also still perfectly functional. :-)

      I think yours may be older than you think. I have one a bit like it with a patent date of 1899 and mikelv85 has this one....

      THANKS MUCH to: elanski, Brunswick, Sinnomore, yougottahavestuff, Pam-and-J.C.Elliot, officialfuel, fortapache, & iggy for sharing the <love it>s! :-) :-) :-)

      Fort, mikelv85's scale is indeed the other one I found with a quick CW search, I'll still guess his is older than mine with its paper face/glass cover. Though they do both otherwise look very similar, mine has a (screen?) painted face and does not look like it ever had the glass. I do not find any markings/stamps on it whatsoever...? (besides what's painted on the front)

      AnythingObscure, your post make me remember one similar in my Quebec Bank Collection, the difference on my scale, is the dial is graduated for postal price, as the scale coming from the first floor where the post office was located at the Bank, was date 1901, wish to posted soon for your viewing.
