A very attractive Black Forest travel desk thermometer dating to the early 20th century. This charming piece of treen was made in Switzerland as a souvenir of Monte Generoso. It is made to fold up neatly for packing away in luggage and unfolds to sit on a desk. It is beautifully carved with edelweiss and gentian flowers. The thermometer scale is made of milk glass painted with the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The mercury bulb and tube are intact and it still works perfectly.
In good original condition.

The measurements given are for the thermometer when closed.


  • H: 1.8cm (0.71in)
  • W: 4cm (1.57in)
  • D: 8.5cm (3.35in)

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
