Product Details

+

Distinctive ornamental (but functional) thermometer utilises 17th century astronomer Galileo Galilei's discovery that the density of liquids varies with temperature.

Carefully weighted glass globes are suspended in a liquid-filled tube, where they sedately sink or float as the surrounding air gets hotter or colder.

Temperature is indicated by the engraved brass tag on the lowest floating globe.

This model includes a 'storm bottle' type indicator of changes in barometric pressure - useful for forecasting the weather.

Measures 13" tall.
