Blue Glass Obelisk Thermometer, c. 1980

The obelisk is the ultimate object- from travellers on their grand tour to modern day antique collectors – we’ve long been fascinated with them. This bijou blue glass Cleopatra’s needle is not just decorative, it tells you how hot or cold it is. Dating from the late 19th century, the bright blue speaks to all ages and how classical tastes continue to entice.
