Practical, Portable, and Perfectly Pretty: Vintage Scales for Your Rustic Kitchen

The appeal of buying shaded, worn looking jeans has never died out. Torn, shredded, and bleached, this is the kind of apparel that seldom goes out of fashion.

Scales are usually all metal or plastic, flat and uninspiring. How do you go about replacing this item with something that complements your kitchen aesthetic?

Here’s the perfect vintage item that you can use to purpose—and a bonus: the perfect deception for your curious visitors! See how a scale on a kitchen shelf adds just the right touch below.

Aged and Unique: A Hanging Scale

You’re probably familiar with the hanging scales to be found in countryside marketplaces: the kind that has a vessel suspended by chains to a measuring device. The ones in marketplaces are usually metallic and have a visible sheen to them, and you’re probably looking for something more rusted, more rugged, and more complementary with a bronze and ivory kitchen aesthetic.

You don’t want your scale to look too polished, but you want it to stand out just the same. It needs to look aged, but it should also be perfectly suitable for use.

Nothing can pull off this countrified and relaxed look like this vintage styled scale clock, rusted just enough, and in just the right places. It comes with a working clock and looks like it has just walked off a rustic farmhouse kitchen from a Thomas Hardy novel.

This scale clock perfectly complements any rustic and farmhouse interior and is unique enough for people looking for a more modern farmhouse aesthetic. Your visitors are sure to be awed by this marvel of a kitchen item—not to say you’ll surely stand out!
