The barometer is in excellent condition. It was a promotional item that was probably given out by the solar oil company. In 1927 Sun Oil introduced its only grade of gasoline, calling it Blue Sunoco, The High Powered Knockless Fuel at No Extra Price. Blue dye was used in the gasoline so that motorists could identify it by its color, through the glass of the 1920s gravity-flow gasoline pumps. The logos are slightly diminished in color but the lettering and numbers on the face are still extremely clear and vibrant.
Im not saying its one of a kind but my research cannot find its equal. All I could say is find another.Thanks for taking a look!
