Our distinctive ornamental (but functional) thermometers utilise 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.
11-globe models are 24" tall, 7-globe models are 17" tall, 5-globe models are 13 " tall and Piccolo models (5-globes) are 11" tall.
Temperature is shown in Celsius.
