This old aluminum rain gauge a “59c Value” was Free with the purchase of Perfection Milk Filters. The gauge with its easy to read increment markings up to 5” has more advertising for the milk filters on the front. The glass vial has never been assembled as described in the instructions on the back of the original box. The base has two screw holes so this could be mounted to perhaps a fence post. The bottom of the gauge and the box read; Schwartz Mfg. Co. Two Rivers, Wisc..
The gauge and glass tube are in very good condition showing virtually no wear. The gauge measures about 6 3/8” high and 3 1/16” wide at the base. The box measures about 3 1/8” by 6 ½” by 1” and is in fairly good condition with light soiling and edge wear. One of the inside flaps is torn off.
