Vintage 1950's green swirl BAKELITE anvil THERMOMETER
A very nice vintage thermometer, made of green swirl bakelite. Please note the color is even more vibrant in real, it was not really possible to capture with the camera the intensity and deepness of that wonderful color. Very unusual huge anvil shape with round thermometer on front, (gilded metal frame + plastic glass protection) and 2 gilded metal frame holes on top to receive pens. Signed in thermometer screen : "LORD". In excellent vintage condition, thermometer in Celsius and in Fahrenheit, in perfect working condition.
This piece has tested positive for vintage traditional bakelite : yellow residue on the Q-tip when using 409 and Simichrome polish + distinctive vintage bakelite aroma when using warm running water. We guarantee its authenticity and its age.
