This antique thermometer was developed for C. W. Abbott & Co. of Baltimore, MD in order to advertise their renowned "aged" bitters. Abbott's bitters were a staple in cocktails prior to prohibition in the US - and the brand has since seen some minor revival from small batch makers. The entirety of the thermometer is made of copper. The face has some obvious discoloration. Please see the photos for details. The thermometer does not appear to work but may be able to be repaired.

This unique piece of cocktail history measures 9.25" in diameter.
