A very rare English George IV period inverted banjo barometer, the elegant mahogany veneered case with original thermometer box in the trunk.

The circular silvered brass engraved register scale reads from 28 – 31 inches and has a radiating star in the centre. It is surmounted by a swan-necked top with an ivory urn in the centre. At the base of the trunk, the maker has engraved his name on a silvered brass rectangular plaque with a brass moulded surround and centred by a spirit level.

Height: 39 ½ in (100 cm) including finial

* P. Aggio is recorded on page 5 of Edwin Banfield’s book ‘Barometer Makers and Retailers 1660-1900’ as working in Colchester between 1820 and 1845.
