Why order this Gilbey's Gin Bubble Thermometer?

Grow your alcohol themed collection with this Gilbey's Gin Bubble Thermometer. The company provided thermometers like this one to restaurants and bars as a means of advertising their products. The establishments appreciated the freebies, and both they and Gilbey's benefitted from increased product exposure and sales. Thermometers like this one were often damaged due to heavy use, but this one is in Excellent condition. It was made from glass and metal at National Distillers Products Corp. in New York, NY. The thermometer weighs about a pound and measures 9". A certificate of authenticity comes with this piece.

The thermometer dates back to the 1950's and is a great choice for time period collectors as well. That decade saw the United States fight in the Korean War, a proxy Cold War confrontation the effects of which continue to be felt today. It also saw the only successful election of a drafted presidential candidate, in this case Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, of the 20th century. Important scientific strides were made as well. The Soviet Union launched the first satellite, Sputnik 1, and the DNA double helix was discovered, paving the way for advances in genetics and medicine. This thermometer offers a close connection to this fascinating period.
