16th March 2017
ULTRA RARE VINTAGE WOODEN, MOBILGAS MOBILOIL PEGASUS THERMOMETER. THIS SELDOM SEEN THERMOMETER HAS THE PEGASUS ON IT AND SAYS SOCONY-VACUUM OIL COMPANY. IT CLEARLY SHOWS TEMPS FROM -30 DEGREES TO +120 DEGREES. IT HAS THE AWESOME LOOKING METAL COVER OVER THE BASE OF THE THERMOMETER AND METAL TABS GOING UP TO HOLD AND COVER THE THERMOMETER. THE MERCURY THERM. DOES HAVE A SPLIT IN THE MERCURY READING AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO, SO ACCURATE TEMPS APPEAR TO BE OUT OF REACH FOR THIS ONE. MULTIPLE PHOTOS POSTED FROM EVERY ANGLE TO SHOW THIS FINE ITEM AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. THE WOOD IS FREE FROM ANY SPLITS, THE INK/GRAPHICS STILL SHOW BRIGHT AND CLEAR. IT SHOWS THE COMPANY THAT MADE IT NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE TEMPS "TAYLOR PERMACOLOR". THE SHIELD THAT COVERS THIS IS REALLY NEAT LOOKING AND CONFIRMS HOW OLD IT IS. THESE WERE BEFORE ALL THE TIN THERMOMETERS AND WOODEN ONES DID NOT SURVIVE OVER TIME. THIS ONE HAS BEEN PRESERVED. NOTE: PHOTOS TAKEN WITH AND WITHOUT FLASH. IT IS MORE WHITE WITH NORMAL WEAR, YELLOWISH TINT IS NOT CORRECT. NOT SURE WHY IT LOOKS THIS WAY. IT IS IS IN "AS FOUND CONDITION" AND NOT CLEANED UP YET. IF YOU FOLLOW PETROLIANA AND KNOW ABOUT THESE, YOU WILL KNOW HOW SPECIAL THIS REALLY IS. BOOKS AND GUIDES RARELY LIST IT DUE TO IT'S RARITY. IT IS FROM AN EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE COLLECTION, AMASSED OVER YEARS AND MANY PIECES HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN IN A LONG TIME. COLLECTION IS NOW BEING THINNED SO CHECK OUT ALL MY OTHER LISTINGS, WITH MORE TO COME!! PRICED FAIRLY BASED ON IT'S RARITY/SCARCITY AND REASONABLE CONSIDERATE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED. SOLD AS IS, SHIPPING TO LOWER 48 STATES. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
