We have a larger Galileo thermometer on our mantle. While ours has twice the spheres (providing a greater temperature range), is all glass and 24", the effect is likely similar. It is both attractive and thought-provoking. This would likely be a most welcome small present at a very reasonable price. I learned that despite the name, this thermometer was not invented by Galileo, but based on his discovery that the density of a fluid changes (mostly proportionately) as its temperature rises or falls.

  Well that would depend on the temperature...

And they can be fairly accurate in a constant environment, i.e., air conditioned. If the temp constantly changes, the response is much too slow and will Chase the actual temp.
