For sale is a vintage Fahrenheit thermometer advertising the Francis H. Curtin Insurance Agency. The thermometer is housed in a brass casing in the shape of a ship's wheel and features an image of a clipper ship on the thermometer face. It is marked Made in USA. The phone number of the insurance agency is written as 3-6700. The thermometer says LAfayette, but based on Francis H. Curtin's obituary, I assume this originates from in or around Cambridge, MA. The brass casing is in good shape and has some nice patina. The thermometer face has a plastic covering. The thermometer appears to be approximately accurate.
The thermometer measures 4" W x 2.75" L x 4.5" H.
