Outstanding rosewood, flat-to-the-wall, bow-front Stick Barometer in essentially original condition; the fine tapering reeded pediment over very delicately engraved silvered brass register plate, signed by the makers and bearing high quality wrap around vernier operated by solid state rack-and-pinion mechanism [possibly from Ramsden]. The trunk, of figured and finely patinated ‘Rio’ rosewood, inset with mercury Fahrenheit thermometer, also signed, and with concealed barometer tube terminating within matching tapering reeded base.

Perhaps the most renowned firm of Scottish Scientific Instrument Makers, Alexander and his son, John [the only instrument makers ever to be elected to the Scottish Royal Society] worked from premises in Princes St. from 1832-57
