Thermometer= Antique Wood Tool SLING PSYCHROMETER Tagliabue Brooklyn

We believe this primative tool to be a sling psychrometer for measuring the dew point. Wet cotton or cloth is placed in base receptacle. Slinging the entire apparatus will cause the water to evaporate, cooling the thermometer and giving a lower reading. This can be compared to a stationary thermometer for calculating the dew point or temperature at which it will rain. Marked: C.J. Tagliabue Mfg. Co. B'klyn N.Y. Made in U.S.A. Mercury thermometer. Metal side indicators with temperature readings in Fahrenheit. Metal receptacle at base of thermometer inside wooden mount with hole in bottom to place wet cloth or cotton. 10-1/4" long. Thermometer is in good condition. 4 tiny screws are missing... 2 on bottom receptacle and 2 on metal side pieces with temperature lines. A few spots of ancient white paint on wood. There's a wonderful look to the wood which shows great age and is worn along the grain lines from years of use.15s6
