Rare 1940's Thos. D. Murphy Co., Advertising Thermometer With Maxfield Parrish Print, "Dreaming."

Offered for the Parrish collector is this wonderful advertising thermometer by Thos. D. Murphy Co., with the Parrish print "Dreaming". This 5 X 7 inch framed thermometer and print have been professionally framed by Hoffman Art & Frame using all archival materials. The larger frame with outside dimensions of 10 3/4 X 12 3/4 inches was double matted with a silver gray linen top mat with a silver fillet underneath. The bottom accent mat is black. The large frame is silver with very nice detail. The print itself is exceptional with no damage and unfaded color and detail and the House of Art inscribed on the lower right area of the print. The thermometer still has its mercury and is in perfect working condition and bears the name of the business owner reading "Compliments of Elmer R. Wood". Since the advertising piece has its own glass, t is no glass in the large outer frame. This will allow the owner to not only use this item as a work of art but also as a working thermometer in their home. A very nice package of framing and rare Parrish collectible.
