MINIATURE FRENCH THERMOMETER
Doesn't every lady need a thermometer in her trunk? Just to be safe?  What if she faints? We would need to know if she is sick or if her corset is just too tight!!

Measuring 3 3/8" long by 5/8" wide, it is made from wood with a glass insert.  The name, Rťaumer, is written on the paper insert in the glass that depicts the degree markings. This is the name of the French firm that made the real, adult size thermometers during the 19th c. A fun and unusual trunk accessory.  $145. SOLD
