This type of mercury thermometer was used on HMS 'Discovery' between 1901 and 1904, on its expedition to the Antarctic. The thermometer was made around 1900, probably by Negretti & Zambra, scientific instrument makers based in London.

The instrument has a scale reading from -40 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It is marked 'ANT: EX: 1901', with Hydrographic Office and Meteorological Office markings.

Robert Falcon Scott, RN (1868-1912) led the British National Antarctic Expedition between 1901 and 1904, which explored the Ross Sea area and discovered King Edward VII Land.
