Very ornate thermoplastic frame that meas. approx. 6.50 x 11.00 inches. The frame has two legs at the bottom similar in shape to those found on a dresser. The legs are topped by a rectangular plinth that supports two Doric columns which in turn supports an arched top with a knight’s head in a laurel wreath looking left at center. Between the two Doric columns and below the arch is a raised panel with a chain border and a brass escutcheon with glass thermometer at center. The brass escutcheon has a scale marked in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. This central panel is flanked by two Corinthian columns decorated with floral.

The piece is highly decorative with raised scrollwork and floral decoration worked into the legs and lower center of the plinth. The two Doric columns have raised laurel leaves while the arch at top has cutout balustrades and a linear swirl pattern with two pomegranate-like finials.

The decorative face is free of chips and cracks and just needs a light cleaning to remove dust from years of storage.

Reverse has a smooth face with an easel type stand for desktop display and a brass loop for hanging on a wall.

A very handsome piece.  [ad]
