A brass standing thermometer which makes a very dramatic statement, due to its height, swirl design, and weighty appearance. The thermometer measures 11-3/8 tall to the very tallest point and 5-7/8" long to its longest point. The glass thermometer itself is 5" tall. The back which holds the thermometer is wood, whereas the front displaying the temperature degrees is brass. The brass backplate is quite dark and the temperature degrees do not stand out. In pictures four and five, I have photographed the temperature backplate and lightened it up so the numbers would be more visible .I have left it up to the buyer as to whether to polish this area.
In excellent condition, the mercury is present and complete( picture 2), in original condition with tarnish on the brass, and scrapings to the wood back. Stands well. A very decorative piece for any room .
