This circa 1890 wall mounted wood & metal drug store advertising thermometer and barometer was made for Franklin Mills Co, Lockport, NY for “Wheatlet,” a breakfast product used to help deal with constipation and digestion, popular at the turn of the 20th century. Very good overall condition -the thermometer and barometer appear to be intact, and the tin lithograph back plate shows some wear and discoloring. Dimensions: 9 ¼” (including wall hook) x 3 ⅛” w x 1 ¼” d. A great addition to your advertising thermometer collection!
