Favourite Item
A cased Victorian desk set containing a barometer, a thermometer and a compass. The set was assembled and retailed by Houghton & Gunn of New Bond Street. The hallmarked silver cases of the compass and barometer / altimeter are both marked for London 1890. The two cases have different watchcase maker's marks B&S on one and FW on the other.

William Houghton originally established his business in 1822. By 1841, he was based at 162 Bond Street, London. It wasn’t until 1868 that he went into partnership with Charles Henry Gunn. Known as Houghton & Gunn, the business remained at the same Bond Street address until it was bought out by Asprey (its next door neighbour) in 1906.
Instruments somewhat dirty but all three instruments are in good working order.
