The thermometer in the picture is based on an invention older than all of us. The Galileo thermometer is based on the works of Galileo and his thermoscope. The thermometer is actually very accurate down to just fractions of a degree according to the instructions that come with it. The only thing you have to avoid is putting it near a heating or cooling vent because that will affect its accuracy.
The way it works is each bulb is filled with a liquid and that liquid changes density based on the heat in the room, when it reaches a temperature above what is hanging from the bulb, the bulb will sink to the bottom leaving the current temperature at the top.
Not only are they beautiful, but they are very practical because of their accuracy. Most people use them as decoration on a desk at work, but many people still use these in their homes as my mother-in-law does. If you are interested you can find them online for under $30.00 and you too can have a story and some history to tell about your own Galileo Thermometer.
