Today I’m sharing this Free Thermometer Clip Art Image. This was scanned from a rare Antique Printer’s book that dates to around Circa 1880′s. It appears to be made out of black metal with a glass thermometer in the center. I would certainly be happy if it was 70 degrees around here today! I’m not sure what the “Blood Heat” words are referring to?! If you have any ideas about that, please let us all know in the comments below.

Perhaps you could use this one to illustrate a post about the Weather or maybe use it in your Steampunk projects. You might also like some Old Fashioned Cast Iron Toys from the same book.

  1. I’m guessing – purely a guess – that Blood Heat, temp is as hot as your blood, i.e. body temperature, 98.6, near 100.

  2. I’ll bet that the “blood heat” is referring to our body temperature. It is an odd way to phrase it though…

    • Oh, I just saw the previous post about the blood heat…
      I’ll go with “Temp Rate” as meaning “temperate” – or moderate, not extreme. Since it is at 60.

  3. Thank you

    So as soon as I saw this picture I knew I had seen it somewhere
    And just confirmed with my mom.. My great grandma had one and growing up
    It was stored in the old house we ended up remodeling. As kids though, it was one
    Of the many antique items we would ” play” with. It’s probably hidden somewhere between the walls of our old farmhouse !! Those were some fun times!

  5. 100.4 is the temp of our blood
    thankyou for all the wonderful images

  6. Love this, thanks Karen.
