This is a most curious aneroid barometer, titled a 'Meteoroid', displaying 28" to 31" inches & associated colour guide to show weather predictions. This covers three quarters of a circle with a separate circular thermometer (glass intact although liquid has temporarily separated)set into the last quarter. Mounted into a large Oak frame with thick bevelled glass, I would guess this instrument was produced as a result of post WW2 'blue sky' thinking. Quite large, some bubbling of the silver paint, but doesn't distract - looks great hung on a wall. In 55 years of specializing in weather instruments, I've never seen one of these before!
