Vintage Postal Scale, Pelouze Y50, Brushed Aluminum, Black & Silver, Weigh Tool, Home Decor, Industrial Instrument, 1995 USA, Craft Supply

$122.00 $152.50

The beautiful brushed-aluminum Pelouze Y50 postal scale is in great condition. The aluminum on the back part of the scale has more of a matte finish as opposed to the shinier silvery finish on the weigh table at the top and the arched frame surrounding the front window. The gorgeous grayish-silver body is beautifully accented with very plain - yet bold - white and black colors. The white numbers and background are highlighted with the very-black border that makes up the individual marks on the scale. While it may be somewhat difficult to notice by looking straight-on at the scale, the white background sits behind a very-clear unbreakable plastic window. The contrasting depth between the black border and white background along with the grayish-silver finish of the body give this beautiful brushed aluminum Pelouze postal scale a modern industrial charm. Along with its aesthetically attractive appearance, it is important to note that the accents on the front of this particular Pelouze Y50 scale represent the rates as they were in January 1995. While the top of the scale window has "MADE IN U.S.A.", the bottom of the window has "NOT LEGAL FOR TRADE BRIDGEVIEW IL 60455 U.S.A. PAT. 2653565 1995" just below the black table in the center. The left of the clear plastic window has "pelouze" with "SEE LOCAL POST OFFICE FOR ZONE CHART" just below. The right of the window shows "MODEL Y50" with "50 lb x 2 oz JANUARY 1995 RATES" just below. Hence, the "0" to "49" marks around the window represent the 50 pound max weight measurement while the space between each individual hash mark between each of the numbers represent 2 ounces. At the bottom of the window there is a "NOT GLASS" molded into the clear plastic window to the left and "UNBREAKABLE" on the right. On the top of the scale just under the slightly distressed shinier silvery finish of the weigh table there is a black sticker with a dual-pointed "U" shaped arrow with "ZERO ADJUSTMENT KNOB" just below. The instructions for setting the scale are on the lower section of the same black sticker and read as follows: "How To Use The Zero Adjustment Knob. Prior to each weighing, align red pointer to zero using zero adjustment knob." Finally, there are four protruding aluminum feet on the bottom that not only help to give the scale balance, but also keep it slightly above whatever surface it might be resting on.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.

There is one little area at the bottom right of the window where the aluminum trim is slightly lower in the corner. While it is very hard to notice, there is a tiny downward bend located to the bottom right of number 23. Other than this, there are no dents, breaks, cracks, loose sections, or repair places on this beautiful brushed-aluminum Pelouze Y50 postal scale. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the scale - mainly in the form of slight distress on the weigh table from use and age. Also, there are some very slight and hard-to-notice distress marks on the surface of the clear plastic window. In addition, the zero adjustment knob along with its lively red needle is in great working condition.

The decorative possibilities for this beautiful brushed-aluminum Pelouze postal scale are many. The display case or collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeously accented brushed-aluminum postal scale. Also, the den or man-cave would welcome this aesthetically attractive Pelouze postal scale for the contrasting depth seen in the front window along with its modern industrial charm. In addition, the growing collection of instruments and gadgets would increase in value and interest upon thew arrival of this beautiful brushed-aluminum Pelouze Y50 postal scale.

The collector will appreciate this aesthetically attractive brushed-aluminum Pelouze postal scale for its great condition, contrasting matte and shiny finishes, bold black and white accents, very-clear unbreakable plastic window, interesting contrast in depth through the front window, modern industrial charm, intact zero adjustment knob, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The beautiful brushed-aluminum Pelouze Y50 postal scale weighs approximately 43 oz.

The gorgeous Pelouze postal scale measures approximately 8.75" tall x 6 5/8" wide across the front from outside to outside x 6 5/8" deep.

The weigh table on top measures approximately 6" wide x 4.75" deep.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
