T are web sites selling these as high as $275.00 (Google keywords - Chandelier Thermometers, Radial scales and Taylor Brothers Thermometers etc...). I had this listed last week and several potential buyers wanted to know why I didn't clean it. Well..... I like to clean my own stuff so I thought others would be the same way. Picture 4 is what it the thermometer use to look like and the other pictures are what it looks like after a 2 day soak in my special brass/copper solution. It can look even better than this. This thermometer is well over 110 years old and still works.
