Whether it's meant to be decorative or not, the big thermometer outside the kitchen window is décor. And, if it's one of those cheap plastic jobbies, especially one that's sun-faded and cracked, then it is unsightly "décor." So, if you've got a shabby thermometer to replace, or you're just in the market for a thermometer, why not make it a handsome piece like the Vermont Natural Brass Dial Thermometer? Constructed of solid brass, copper housings, and real glass, the Vermont Dial Thermometer is built to last, and adds an upscale vintage feel to the home; combining practical simplicity with a timeless design. Its brass and copper are naturally resistant to corrosion. Left to weather and age, the thermometer will take on a rich, dark patina as seen on copper roofs or outdoor lanterns. A 4-1/4-inch dial face is easy to read from across the kitchen-the numbers are plenty big, and aren't too close together. An outdoor swivel arm bracket ensures mounting at just the right angle. The thermometer displays both Fahrenheit and Celsius. And, convex glass housing protects the precision-calibrated, so this unit stands the test of time, thrives in inclement weather, and survives the occasional jostle. Manufactured in Vermont, this classic thermometer is guaranteed for life! --Brian Olson
Shouldn't a weather instrument be as durable as your house? Shouldn't it enhance your view while it measures the temperature? We think so! That's why we use solid brass and copper housings and real glass. These classic thermometers combine practical simplicity with timeless design. Solid brass and solid copper endure well outdoors because they are naturally resistant to corrosion. Left unattended, they will attain a rich, dark patina like that of a copper roof or outdoor lantern. We do not apply a protective coating to the surfaces of our outdoor products because there is no clear coating that lasts as long as the raw metal itself. This dial thermometer is finished in natural brass and uses a 4.25 inch diameter dial face with an outdoor swivel arm bracket for mounting at just the right angle.
