Product Description

A very nice example of a c1890 quality pocket barometer in its original leather case.

The barometer itself, is finished in heavily gilded metal with a loop to enable it to be attached to a chain and with a white face, graduated in inches. The face is marked COMPENSATED and with the maker's name NEGRETTI & ZAMBRA – LONDON. The reverse of the barometer has a small screw to adjust the barometric pressure depending on altitude. The barometer comes with its original protective leather case and is in nice condition. The silk has shredded with age and the button to open is missing, although it opens easily if you press where it used to be. The green velour in which the barometer sits, has stained the gilding along the edge, but should be simple to remove professionally.

Does not appear to be in working order although we are unsure as to its accuracy.

Size: 6.2 x 8 x 3.2 cm (2 7/16 x 3 1/8 x 1 2/8 inches)
Weight: 114 g
