Almanac Retro Advertising Thermometer
Designed to resemble a vintage advertising thermometer!
Commercial advertising on wall thermometers has a storied history, harkening back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These functional advertising tools became popular as companies realized that coupling their brand with an item of everyday utility meant repeated exposure to consumers. Often made of metal or tin, and later, porcelain enamel, these thermometers would be prominently displayed in public spaces or outside businesses, offering passersby not only the temperature but also a vivid advertisement. Many of these thermometers featured the names and logos of soda companies, agricultural products, service stations, and local businesses, becoming collector's items over the years.

Our retro advertising-style thermometer is more than just flat metal—it has been molded, creating a distinctive curved edge to a depth of half an inch. This attention to detail not only adds to its vintage charm but also makes it a collector's piece for Almanac fans.
Very Nice thermometer, great design & color! Was disappointed that for the price, it's not make in USA!! A bit spendy for a metal Chinese device. My fault for not noticing the "made in Asia"
