Vintage Tel-Tru Jr. Outdoor Thermometer Germanow-Simon

Vintage Tel-Tru outdoor thermometer made by Germanow-Simon Company, Rochester, New York. I'm sure it would work just as well indoors.

"The Germanow-Simon Corporation was founded in 1916 in Rochester, NY. Starting as a small machine shop, the company quickly grew to become a major supplier of replacement watch crystals made of plastic. During the 1930s G-S purchased Tel-Tru Manufacturing Company and developed this division to become a leading supplier of bimetal thermometers."

This thermometer works and is in good condition. If you look at the convex lens at an angle, you can see little scratches consistent with normal age and use. Diameter is 2-1/4". The height, it's bulbous, is about 1". Has a flange to hang it by.
It was very hard to get a good photo of this, due to the convex lens. If any of the lettering seems faded or missing, that's only because of the flash or angle. The lettering is fully intact and readable.
Will ship 1st class USPS in a small hard box.
