The Vermont Outdoor Thermometer offers an elegant and inexpensive way to monitor the temperature. The antiqued solid brass housing and mounting bracket are not coated, painted or plated, so it won't peel, chip, or rust. This thermometer is 7.5 inches high with both Fahrenheit and Centigrade scales. It has the durability of an optical quality unbreakable polycarbonate tube. This thermometer uses accurate spirit tube technology and is entirely mercury free.
