Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The dial is inscribed: C. J. Schalfino Taunton Waranted, and is decorated with a Masonic star symbol and a crescent moon.
The case is inlaid at the top and base with burnished boxwood and sycamore and has an oval shell motif to either side of the base of the thermometer with conforming inlay. The works are restored and in full working order.
Schalfino was a prolific maker and many of his barometers feature main dials engraved with Masonic signs and emblems. It is thought that he was known as John Schalfino.
