This is an elaborate old French thermometer. Why not have everyday items beautiful and enhancing your life? I have mentioned occasionally that on my desk are antique pieces, such as antique glass (Whitefriars, etc) holding pens and even paperclips. A beautiful and fascinating scholar stone just to think about how to proceed with your schedule. A gnarled old Chinese brushpot can hold pens or even several flowers. And a fabulous silver singing bird music box to even please your hearing.
This has been created with all kinds of materials. The thermometer as such is mounted on a bronze or brass scale (Celsius). The ornamented part is made from copper, followed by a green felt (which is original and not replaced). The main body is wooden.
The object can stand and can be hung at a wall.
Size: 7 7/8 " (20 cm) long and 4 3/4 " (12 cm) wide.
Condition: No damage or losses. No repairs. The overall condition is better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. However, some wear is expected and present.
