The mercury thermometer has a scale made of bone with painted calibrations in Fahrenheit and Réaumur . An open cavity allows some light onto the back of the thermometer giving the scale a slight luminescence. The thermometers scientific merit was probably secondary to its role as a souvenir to the many Victorians who visited Tunbridge Wells to take the waters and enjoy the scenery.
