Attractive and unusual mid-19th Century bow-fronted mahogany Marine Stick Barometer in essentially original condition; the “ogee” pediment over engraved ivory register plates, signed by the maker, with rack-and-pinion operated vernier, and protected by bowed glass in unusual brass frame. The bow-fronted trunk, of solid mahogany, inset with Fahrenheit and Réaumur mercury thermometer, concealing original constricted-bore barometer tube which terminates within turned brass cistern cover. Mounted on replaced gimbals.

Lecoutre, an immigrant from East Prussia [now Lithuania] established a ship's chandler's business at 21 Russell Street, Rotherhythe, around 1838. This barometer would, in all probability, have been made by his friend and colleague Francis Walker, a marine instrument-maker, based at Wapping Wall.
