ROTOTHERM bakelite cased desk or wall thermometer with 3 inch dial, 1950s

This simple and classic bakelite thermometer by British manufacturer Rototherm was designed to be either free-standing or wall-hanging. Aimed at the domestic consumer, it was available in a range of colours and was also favoured by manufacturers as an advertising or promotional gift.

This example is in ivory with an off-white dial. It has been fully disassembled, cleaned and polished and is in excellent condition with just a few light marks to the dial, visible only on close inspection. It is supplied in full working order (the simple bimetallic movement has been adjusted using 20 degrees C as a datum and is sufficiently accurate to give a good indication of temperature (+/- 1 degree) from 10 to 30 degrees C.

Dial diameter 3 inches (75mm); height 100mm; depth 40mm
