Galileo Galilei, the pioneer of modern physics and astronomy, never could have imagined that the remarkable thermometer he invented four centuries ago would become one of the most attractive, intriguing, eye-catching gift items today. To look at a glass Galileo Thermometer is to behold not only an instrument that tells the precise temperature but also a work of beauty and art. The Galileo Thermometer is a conversation piece that leaves a lasting impression. Few other gift items meld design and concept so effectively. This Galileo thermometer is 12” tall and contains five 4 degree graduation spheres. Spheres have a small brass plate with a temperature graduation engraved on it. The floating spheres move up and down inside the liquid-filled cylinder depending on the surrounding temperature. The lowest floating sphere in the upper part of the cylinder tells the correct temperature. Thermometer height: 12” Number of floating spheres: 5 Temperature range: 64 deg – 80 deg F Temperature increments: 4 deg F Base Diameter: 2.5 in Tube Diameter: 1.25 in Made of hand-blown glass. Warning: Breakable. Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. Filled with non-flammable and non-toxic oil-based liquid which can be cleaned with soap and water if spilled..
