Scale napkin holder

This neat old scale must have been sitting outside in the weather for years, and we got it for $4.  With a bit of Briwax, I sealed in the rust and gave it a burnished look.  Adding an old porcelain tin plate where the old holder was, it became a perfect napkin holder for the kitchen table.
