I’ve seen Nutone Concealed Scales like this in the wild on several occasions — at estate sales and at a friend’s house.  See some of those photos and my catalog page here.

This is very very tempting for me to buy — I know just where I could tuck it, in the downstairs bathroom, which is not tiled along along walls. Alas, I am really trying to lighten up my load. Haha. Get it: Bathroom scale… lighten load? 

I have a cardinal rule: Bathroom scales are meant for decoration, NEVER for using! Don’t let a number determine your mood! Step away!

    I have the scale my parents got when they got married, doesn’t look really beautiful but works just fine. 1955 It’s not a built-in so I have had it in every home. I love using something so utilitarian that reminds me of my parents.

      I have an in-wall hamper, picked up at … I forget where. It’s been in my attic for a while! I need to put it on ebay!

  2. Karin Jeffrey says:

    It’s a beauty. I know they’re rare, but $300? Ouch. Pam, love your thoughts on not letting the numbers on the scale determine your mood.

  3. Carolyn says:

    As far as scales go, I wish my Dr. used a digital one – just how accurate are those beam ones when the weight taker is off to the side? Then I step on my home scale and they don’t match.
    Now these entries beg the question – why didn’t these hideaway items catch on or why haven’t they progressed since then? I can understand the cleaning aspect (what a bear to get into the nooks and crannies!) but…they were hidden away! Do we blame “Dallas” for losing sight of “The Jetsons”?

    I see that it sold. I would love to have one, but at $300, I am glad it sold, now I don’t have to wrestle with myself if I should buy it or not.

  5. Michelle says:

    I have 4 of these scales one in each bathroom of my time capsule. currently one is for sale as I am doing a bathroom.

    1. Pam Kueber says:

      Thanks, Michelle, how lucky you are!

      Note, I just want to take this opportunity to remind: no buying/selling in comment threads or else it becomes chaos.

    Ha ha! Love your philosophy on the decorative-only function of bathroom scales. Especially as this one has a 10 pound lead.
