Measurement Treasures!

This is my new collection of old scales.  I grew up with the one on the right and so it is an integral part of my history.  My mother loved to bake and so did I.  My mom is moving home in a few days, and so passed it on to me. 
The scale on the left has an unknown history.  It was a thrift shop find,  but it was obviously well-used and helped to bake lots of treats.
I love the typograpphy and the patina, that only time and use can embellish with!
