I've been wondering how it would look painted. I keep visualizing either red or white.
Last night, I was watching an old episode of The Walton's on tv. During a scene in Godsey's Store, I realized Ike Godsey was standing in front of a scale just like this one! I wanted to say, "Ike, please move over! I want a closer look at that scale!"
It was white - and pretty as could be. Since that particular episode was set in the mid 1940's, I'd say that's the era my scale is from.
Now when I watch The Walton's, I'll be keeping my eyes peeled during scenes from Godsey's Store. I want to see that scale again!
