Papier Mâché Thermometer

  c.1850/60 English  

Dimensions: height: 23cm; base: 16.5x6cm .  

Price: SOLD

 

This is the first working thermometer set in a papier mâché stand which I have seen and must be really quite rare. It is a pretty and practical piece, fashioned in a very glamorous shape. Good use of inlaid Mother-of-Pearl and skilful painting. Condition is very good indeed.
