Counselor's Turned-On Bath Scales | Seventeen Magazine (1970)




Counselor's Turned-On Bath Scales
Back in the 1970s, when even watching your weight could be considered a 'Groovy' experience! These scales were advertised as being 'perfect for gifts'...however, something tells me that there may be one in this particular collection that no weight conscious individual would truly appreciate receiving as a gift! There are still some of these vintage Counselor bathroom scales around, I've even found a few of the ones in this advert currently available for sale online, see for yourself via the links at the end of the post.
  



The Way-Out  Weigh-ins

Twelve Op Art designs in bold, vibrant, NOW colors. Low-profile scales hug floor. Large, easy read dials. Perfect for gifts! At better department stores. By Counselor, The Brearley Company. Rockford. Illinois 61105.
