Here's an antique c1890 sterling desktop thermometer by Gorham. It is made of sterling silver and the front is elaborate hand-chased with a repoussé floral design surrounded by wave and scroll motifs. The piece has a flat backing with a sinuously curving stand.

The thermometer itself is set against a celluloid backing with temperature readings on the left and wonderful descriptive terms on the right (Zero, Freezing, Temperate, Sum'r heat, Blood heat, and Fever heat). The lettering has worn so it is a little difficult to read. This is a hard to find addition to your Gorham collection.

There is also a scratch mark of TW-, which was Gorham's wholesale price code. DIMENSIONS: 4 7/16" x 2 3/16". Good antique condition; it is missing the lower screw that anchors the celluloid (somebody could probably fabricate another, or take a casting of the remaining screw); the lettering on the celluloid has faded--it was probably once inked. Please refer to the description for the most accurate information.
