T --This is a very nice little gold metal framed picture with an enclosed themometer given out by businesses for the purpose of advertising...allowing the customer to hang this useful & attractive piece on their wall, which also bore the name of the business with their phone number, city & state. In this case, this charming little picture of 'ships in a harbor', is compliments of Chambersburg Dairy Products Co. also known as 'Dairimaid Products', Chambersburg, Pa. The 3-digit phone number dates this piece to probably pre 1928 when a 3-digit phone number was used. These little premiums usually had a calendar that was on the back and could easily be dropped down if the patron wanted to use it that way. Once that year was past, many just removed the calendar and used the little piece as a thermometer. This is the case with this piece...as you can see on the back that the calendar has been removed. This little piece measures 4" x 5" and comes complete with glass and working thermometer and metal hanging ring or impressed cardboard hanger. The lower right corner tells that this is: Compliments - Chambersburg Dairy Products Co - Dairimaid Products - Phone 834 - Chambersburg, Pa. A nice little collectible advertising piece to add to your collection. See condition below>
