This is an early 1950’s BUICK promotional thermometer. This neat thermometer is from the same BUICK series of dealer promotional items as the BUICK miniature road construction sign ashtray. This mint thermometer reads “BUICK” below the mercury tube. The Bakelite base is embossed “It’s Hot. Better Buy BUICK”. Measures 3” high. I’ve seen a number of this particular BUICK thermometer over the years. Many are found with a crack at the base of the large glass tube. It would be hard to find a better example of this BUICK promotional thermometer these days. It is in very good condition, and also works fine. NOTE: Please pardon all the dust on the Bakelite base. I didn't notice that before taking the photos. It's clean now! The price is $85, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.
