Art Nouveau Hallmarked Chester 1908 British Sterling Silver Desk Thermometer For Sale
This is the most appealing and unique antique item - a signed and hallmarked Great Britain sterling silver standing desk thermometer. Hallmarked for James & Crompton out of Chester in 1908. Elegant art nouveau inspired silver design with celluloid thermometer center. Note the designations along side the temperature scale - blood heat at at 96.8, sumr heat at 76. temperate at 55, and freezing at 32. TOTALLY BRILLIANT! Unfortunately, thermometer is no longer working - mercury is missing(probably a good thing). Measures about 6 1/4" high, 3 1/2" wide. Aqua blue velvet backing is worn, back easel is bent (thermometer still stands nicely though). It is, indeed, a wonderful piece - over 100 years old.
Thiswonderful thermometer was obtained at an old San Francisco estate liquidation. Other vintage items from that sale are listed this week so please take a moment to look at my other sales.
