Negretti & Zambra were the foremost Scientific Instrument makers of the latter 19th and early 20th Centuries, producing a large volume of precision instruments. This type of barometer was produced at public expense primarily for fishing ports and Life-boat Stations from c1860, and hence was assembled entirely using brass screws and without glue.
No 12 was located at Irvine Lifeboat Station in Ayrshire from 1861 until its closure in 1914.
