This teardrop-shaped Galileo thermometer will look great in any position indoors and shows the current temperature. It 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. Measures 4.5" tall, 3" wide with 5 globes ranging from 18 to 24 degrees. Gift Boxed.

Beautiful and great quality. Unusual yet functional ornament. I bought it as a Xmas gift for someone and I'm sure they will love it. Excellent service too. Highly recommend!
I bought this item not as a practical weather forecaster, but as a mantelpiece ornament and it fits the bill perfectly. Very elegant and pretty
Very pleased with my purchase and your services
The thermometer arrived quicker than expected especially as there had been no communication. Packed safely. Lovely ornament, unfortunately temperature baubles begin at 18?C so it needs to be in the warmest room for any baubles to move. However I am pleased with my purchase.
