image details

Description
Casartel of Amsterdam made this alcohol thermometer. He marked it with both Fahrenheit and Florentine scales, as no one scale was universally recognised at the time. The domestic design of the thermometer shows its probable origin as a stylish ornament rather than an instrument for serious science.
