Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Only a small number of barometers by Hallifax have survived and are generally in distinguished collections like The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the former collection of Percival Griffiths, Noel Terry and Irwin Untermyer, to name but a few. All of them share the same distinctive long case clock outline, and they vary only in minor detail or size.
Note: This important barometer survives in excellent condition and has acquired an outstanding patina.
Private collection, England.
