Antique Toledo Scale?

Answer

Antique Toledo scales are often used for decorative purposes to give a home an old fashioned feel. These vintage dial scales came in food weight styles and larger models to measure body weight. Many of these antique scales are rare finds and can cost thousands of dollars, while others are sold at more reasonable prices at under $100. The Toledo Scale Company was founded in 1897 when Allen DeVilbiss, Jr. created a new kind of scale without springs.
