1940s Smiths Aircraft Air Temperature Cockpit Gauge

1940s Smiths Aircraft Air Temperature Cockpit Gauge, which we believe to have been made for the post-WW2 De Havilland Dove. This Vintage Scientific Instrument/Gadget/Meter is sold as collectible only. It is in pretty good cosmetic condition with surface scuffs and scratches. It measured air temperature in degrees celsius.

A similar type of gauge was used by RAF aircraft during WW2. The gauge we have for sale has no RAF stores number but does have typical Smiths WW2 labels.

Labelled on the side:-

Calibrated Platinum Law
