Item Description

A fine wall thermometer with bronze frame, suitable for interior or conservatory use, signed J. Auricoste, French, ca.1900, 38 ins. high.

Émile Thomas, a skilled watchmaker specializing in marine chronometers, founded a watch-making company in 1854 that became the official watchmaker for the French Navy and Air Force. In 1889, Joseph Auricoste took over the firm and renamed it J. Auricoste to reflect his new ownership. In addition to watches and clocks, the company produced thermometers and barometers, including many of portable pocket size. The firm exhibited at the 1889 Exposition Universelle to wide acclaim and continues to produce exceptional instruments to this day.
