Galileo Thermometers are magnificent creations that make Galileo's 400 year old principle of relative density a functional reality. An accurate indoor thermometer encased in brilliant glass, the Galileo is the point at which art meets science and adds sparkle and focus to any setting. Each of the liquid-filled floats weighs grams more than the one above it in the cylinder to ensure a stately and orderly procession of ups and downs as the temperature changes. STORM GLASS: Fitzroy’s storm glass is a mysterious phenomenon, utilized by meteorologist Admiral Robert Fitzroy as he sailed in the 18th century, most notably as captain of the HMS Beagle during Charles Darwin's famous voyage. A special combination of liquids inside the glass is able to predict weather changes with the appearance of streaks, cloudiness, flakes and crystals. The light wood surround measures in height 5.5", width 6.5", and a depth of 2".
