White DeTecto Beam-type Baby Scale + 1 weight

After thinking about how to use this vintage White DeTecto Beam-type Baby Scale , and checking online to see if anyone else had anything to say I decided that this scale could be used to display baby dolls in a vignette, definition from Merriam-Webster dictionary. It might also display medical books, medical tools of the trade, vintage folded cloth diapers and baby sweaters... Maybe the vignette is closer to description # 1, a picture (scale), so placed. Wikipedia (one definition) said "Vignette (literature), short, impressionistic scenes that focus on one moment or give a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting". Maybe the vignette is photographic, soft edged.
