Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned in the winter of 1926-27 by Liberty magazine to design a series of cover designs, one for each month of the year. These imaginative graphic designs were rejected, deemed too "radical" by the publisher. For the month of May, Wright created a stylized version of a May Basket. The complex cluster of geometric shapes represents fruits, flowers and streamers of ribbon for the celebration of the spring. The design of this thermometer is adapted from this drawing. This thermometer has an antique patina finish.
Finish: verdigre patina on solid brass, mercury free thermometers : Dimensions: 3" W x 8.63" L
