CHECK THIS ONE OUT=>
This automobile radiator-mounted type engine temperature indicator was imported from France and acquired from a French source. It is a thermometer-based type indicator, housed in a solid cast all brass Art Deco-style wedge form. It has a chrome top-side plate finish. (Chrome plating was not introduced before 1934 or there about.)
There are no inventor or manufacturer's markings anywhere on it. And, other factors surrounding its origins and automobile model application are purely speculative at this time.
Undoubtedly a lone survivor of a very small, particular vahicle model application run.
It has a specific curvature that is designed to fit a specific vehicle, like a 1936 Delahaye Model 135.
It has two temperature range indicating notches on either side of the temperature indicating thermometer tube cast into the frame. (The notches indicate the normal engine operating radiator coolant fluid temperature.)
Shown here, you can see the very different/unique, bent thermometer tube.
It's dimensions are:
Overall Length - 6 Inches
Width - 3 5/8 Inches
Gauge Height - 1 Inch
Thermometer Probe Length - 1 3/4 Inches
Radiator Filler Tube Fitment Collar - 1 3/8 Inches
