This is a rather unusual vintage piece. Art deco in style, this framed mirror and thermometer is a salesman's sample. On the back of the frame are the following instructions: Style No. 68 T C, Mirror No. 804, Gold or Silver Metal Frame, cannot be furnished without thermometer. Pictures sampled can be used in this design. Place picture over Mirror for sample effect. If picture is wanted in place of mirror use numbers on back of picture. Pictures may be assorted if desired.
To be used as an example, this sample was offered to stores so they could advertise their products or businesses. The businessman would simply choose a picture of his preference. Frame measures 6x8 and is silver metal. Wire on back for hanging. Thermometer still works. Condition is good...mirror has a few black flecks, but it is in amazingly good shape. An interesting piece of advertising history.
