Rare and Unusual 1950s Grapette Soda Bottle Scale

About

Advertisers were always looking for a unique spin to sell products, and this standing scale is as unique as they come! Placed in a market or cafe, this bottle would remind you to pick up a Grapette soda. Even the metal foot plate suggests "Thirsty Or Not". We have had the Royal Crown and Sprite versions in the past, but have never seen or heard of the Grapette version. Because the soda was promoted in smaller markets, it reasons that far fewer of this brand scale were ever produced. The standing scale works well without money, and the cabinet is in nice original condition. It shows some natural signs of age, but no major structural condition issues.
