This 1940s reverse painted silhouette framed thermometer picture was an advertising promotion of Owen Hardware of Shelley Idaho. It's just over 5 by 4 inches and has a scene of a cowboy tending his campfire with his horse looking on, painted in black silhouette on the reverse side of the glass. The color litho print background image is a nice mountain scene. A small working thermometer is mounted at the upper right side. The gold nameplate at the lower center reads: Owen Hardware, Majestic Ranges, Sporting Goods, Electrical Supplies, P.O. Box 277 Shelley Idaho Phone 2151.
The picture is in good condition with a little glue staining on the back at the upper left corner. There was once a paper calendar pad attached to the bottom of the frame, you can see where it was removed from the back cardboard hanger insert.
