Unusual, 19th Century, oak-cased ‘Farmers’ Stick Barometer – uniquely numbered 441- and in largely original condition. The ogee pediment over signed porcelain register plates bearing twin mercury ‘wet-and-dry-bulb’ thermometers. The plain trunk with barometer tube terminating in square base.

Such barometers were used by the farmer to determine relative humidity as well as pressure and temperature data. Negretti & Zambra were the most illustrious international meteorological instrument makers of the 19th and 20th centuries.
