I have owned this thermostat for nearly 8 years now. It’s in incredible condition, and all aspects function perfectly between the movements of the brackets and temperature. The Shell emblem is behind the glass, and the thermostat states Your Friendly Shell Dealer and Johnson Oil Company. Does anybody know how this thermometer came about between the two companies? I think it has to be circa 1920-1930 I have no idea on the value as well, and would love to know if anyone owns one themselves or has any info at all on this? Many thanks!!!

I had initially thought that the Shell logo was older. Another member is thinking 50’s to 60’s but I do still think it a great piece. I believe I have seen a thermometer before that was exactly like this just no advertising what so ever. I paid around $350 or $400 for it about 8 years ago. For its condition and subject matter I believe I did good. I have a few more Shell pieces that I would like to ask about as well. So keep an eye out if you can. Thanks again for the info! And also would have any idea on value? Just curious
