Industrial Thermometer with Angle Stem

Description
A mercury-in-glass thermometer with a milk-white back is held in a cylindrical brass housing. The scale reads from 20 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit and from -6 to +87 degrees Reaumur. It was probably made by Hohmann & Maurer, and it came to the Smithsonian in 1923.
