Original 1940s Porcelain Advertising Thermometer for NR Laxative and Tums

This is a great porcelain on steel advertising thermometer for Tums and NR All Vegetable Laxative. I love the phrase "COME IN - IF YOU GET IT HERE IT'S GOOD".




This sign is in great shape with the only chips being on the mounting holes and a small area on the upper right back edge. Other than that, the thickly shelved porcelain is clean, shinny and bright. The thermometer is intact and works. Other than the phase "Made In The U.S.A." is the only makers mark.

This is a great functional sign that has a great thick look and wonderful colors.
