The Old Scale

Here’s the antique scale I used to measure split peas the other night. As far as my mom knows, it was my great-grandmother’s scale.image

An antique scale for my antique stove. (Just kidding. I don’t keep it on the stove.)

  1. Whenever I used it I would weigh something of known weight and adjust it. Like the stove, they don’t make things like they used to-to last for generations.

  2. I looked around a bit online and it looks like this was manufactured around the turn of last century, and were most likely named after the 1893 Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. 🙂 The scientist in me wants to scream CALIBRATE!
