A wonderful working wall thermometer that tells both centigrade and fahrenheit and does so with such glamor and class. The old original domed and padded silk velvet-covered jewelry and watch cushion is large, can display a collection of brooches, or your pocket watch (use a pin) or whatever you wish to show off there. I suspect it was meant for a pocket watch initially, though there is not a hook to confirm that. A great piece and has the old 19th century woven fabric backing, too. All original.
Very good condition for age and type. The piece has a gold metal (brass alloy) that has ribbon & bow and further accented by 2 putti, angels or cupids. Some nap missing from the old velvet, which is a loden green color. The thermometer is blown glass with snail curl bottom, fully functional and accurate, no breaks. It is mounted on a silver metal backing. Wonderful accent for authenticity in your French Country home.
