A fine 1840s rosewood clock banjo barometer of giant proportions, by D Fagioli & Son.

The case features well-figured rosewood veneers. The swan-neck top is surmounted by a brass urn finial. Below this is an inset hygrometer dial and a short convex glass thermometer box with a mercury filled tube and silvered brass rectangular dial.

The timepiece clock has elegant steel moon hands to the 6-inch diameter white enamel Roman dial. It has a brass opening bezel fitted with beveled convex glass. The fusee timepiece movement with pendulum has an 8-day duration.

The 12 inch diameter silvered register plate is finely engraved with a central starburst and the states of the weather. The two pointers, one for setting in brass and the other for reading the weather in blued steel are of matching design. The dial is signed D. Fagioli & Son, 3 Great Warner Street, Clerkenwell, and sits behind high-dome convex glass.

Above the base is a rectangular inset spirit level with engraved silvered plate.
In excellent original condition, the movements to be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
D. Fagioli & Son is listed in Edwin Banfield’s Barometer Makers and Retailers as working at 3 Great Warner Street, Clerkenwell, London between 1840 and 1851.
