Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The simple oak case has the customary arched top, concealed large-bore mercury tube and leather cistern, and a mercury thermometer mounted on the trunk.
The case exhibits the lacquered brass-headed screws, as you would expect.
The barometer scale has perfect porcelain plates, with vernier allowing reading in hundredths.
Many of these barometers are still on display today in simple glazed boxes or built into a wall in various coastal locations around Britain.
Guaranteed for 3 years.
The term Storm Barometer was only applied in 1865. That information, together with the Hatton Garden address on the plates, enables us to date this barometer quite accurately to 1867.
