Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The flame mahogany veneered case has a swanneck top surmounted by a turned bone finial. Below the pediment, there is an inset hygrometer dial and underneath this there is a convex glass thermometer box with an alcohol filled tube and silvered brass rectangular dial.
The 6 inch round silvered brass dial clock with Roman hour numerals and blued steel hands is located below the thermometer and has a brass opening bezel for the convex glass door. The plated timepiece movement runs for a week.
The 13 inch diameter silvered register plate is finely engraved with a central foliate swag and the states of the weather are indicated concentrically around the edge. The two pointers, one for setting in brass and the other for reading the weather in blued steel appear to be original.
Above the base, the maker has signed the rectangular silvered plate over the inset spirit level D. Fagioli, London.
