The vintage kitchen scale was a friend of mine's grandmothers. It was made in the manufacturing town of New Britain Connecticut, home of Stanley works. This Landers, Frary & Clark Universal kitchen scale was described by the company president as "the first product designed particularly for the American housewife".
Landers, Frary & Clark was a housewares company based in New Britain, Connecticut. It operated from 1865 until its assets were sold to the General Electric company in 1965.
They manufactured a wide variety of products over the years, including stainless steel bull-nose rings and electric ranges, kitchen scales and vacuum bottles, window hardware and ice skates, mouse traps and percolators, can openers, cutlery, straight razors, aluminum cookware, and thousands of other products.
Many of these items were marketed under the brand Universal.
Some of the non-electric kitchenware assets were acquired from G.E. in 1984 by Universal Housewares, Inc./Universal Trading, Inc., who still market "Universal" meat grinders and coffee mills.
