Description This is a wonderful piece of Americana! It’s an authentic penny scale that were often used at drug stores during the last part of the 1800s-circa 1920s. It's a large floor model penny scale from circa 1920s. This scale was made by the Columbia Weighing Machine Co. NY. It measures 70 1/2 inches tall by 16 1/2 inches wide and the bottom portion is 27 inches from front to back. Sides are made of wood, the bottom portion where you Stand is made of porcelain with mozaic tiles, and there are two mirrored sections on the front of the scale. Scale is in working order but needs an adjustment or I've finally lost a few pounds. The Columbia Weighing Machine Company was founded in Pittsburgh in 1902. Ten years later they moved to the Bronx NY. The company started making coin operated scales with mirror in 1922. The firms name became Columbia Scale Company in 1930. The wood sides are in nice condition. Mirrors are in good shape with no breaks and a bit of foxing. A beautiful piece that would make a interesting addition to any period bathroom or kitchen.
