This shows how the coolest things are so easily overlooked. I had no idea what this little thing was, and almost passed it by. Good thing I took a second look because I KNOW there is a home for this somewhere. This charming little lantern is actually a working thermometer, reading in Fahrenheit, and perfect for your desk or dresser. I think the metal case is spun aluminum with a golden brass finish. The working parts are encased in plastic. The arrow pointer moves to indicate the temperature, and it really works! The 4 knobs that hold the case together screw off so the whole thing comes apart if you want it to. It is a little dusty inside so a cleaning might do it some good. There are NO scratches or damage to the metal, but there might be some slight scuffs to the plastic – hard to tell 'til it's cleaned up. It stands 2 3/8" high, not including the hanging ring. It is 2 3/8" across the top. The dial is marked MADE IN FRANCE and THERMOMETER FAHRENHEIT, but does not say a maker. Such a clever little object and USEFUL, too. My best guess is that it dates to the 1950s, maybe earlier.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS – OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES -- I AM HAPPY TO SHIP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, but international shipping costs vary so much for my vintage items, that I ask my potential international buyers to PLEASE convo me for costs PRIOR TO PURCHASE. The shipping price listed for EVERYWHERE ELSE is intentionally crazy high – PLEASE DO NOT PAY IT WITHOUT CONVOING ME FIRST. I will happily calculate your correct shipping price, based on your location and how you want it shipped .Overseas buyers may have to pay customs or duty upon receiving their item, but it is NOT my responsibility to pay it for you and it will not be reflected in the shipping cost. I put the exact selling price on the customs forms, please do not ask for any different amount.


I am new to Esty, just getting started. I sold on ebay since 1997, but hope to find a home here. Please contact me if you have questions or think I have left something out.

I try to price my vintage items fairly – I want them to find appreciative new homes. If you LOVE an item, but think it is a little out of your range, convo me with an offer and I will see what I can do.

I pack items VERY well and try to ship as inexpensively as is safely possible but I DO add a small bit for supplies. On things that have to go Priority Mail, I base my shipping cost on the West Coast, which makes a BIG difference on the heavier items. If you are closer, I encourage you to Convo me for an adjusted price. If you don't, and the shipping works out higher than it should, I try to add an extra little treasure from my stash to make it up to you.

I proudly use, mostly, recycled packing materials. If you have an issue with that, please convo me at purchase.
