HERE FOR SALE I HAVE THIS FABULOUS ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN CARVED WALNUT WHEEL BAROMETER.

MEASURING APPROXIMATELY 20.5 CMS IN DIAMETER, AND WITH A DEPTH OF APPROXIMATELY 4.5 CMS, THIS IS A TRUE CLASSIC OF ITS TYPE.,

IN A CRISPLY CARVED CIRCULAR CASE, THE CARVED FRONT OF THE WHEEL BAROMETER IS IN AN OBLIQUE" EGG AND DART" PATER, WITH THE OUTER EDGES BEING CURVED WITH DEEP CUT BORDER RINGS. THE DESIGN TO THE TOP OF THE BAROMETER CASE IS SIMILARLY EDGED WITH DEEP CRISP RING CARVING.

THE CASE IS A DEEP RICH WALNUT WITH A LOVELY ORIGINAL PATINA OF THE TYPE THAT CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH AGE.

THE MECHANISM IS HOUSED IN THE CENTRE OF THE CASE AND IS OF THE "OPEN APERTURE" TYPE, WHICH MEANS THAT THE WORKINGS CAN BE VIEWED THROUGH A CENTRAL OPENING IN THE PORCELAIN DIAL, BORDERED BY  A POLISHED BRASS BEZEL.

THE SCALE PLATE IS OF CREAM PORCELAIN WITH THE SCALE APPLIED IN RICH SCARLET AND JET BLACK GOTHIC TEXT. UNUSUALLY FOR INSTRUMENTS OF THIS AGE THE SCALE PLATE SHOWS NO EVIDENCE OF FADING AND IS CLEAN BRIGHT AND FRESH.

THE HANDS ARE OF BLUES STEEL AND BRASS AND ARE OF THE TRADITIONAL "SPEAR" FORM.

THE MECHANISM AND SCALE PLATE ARE PROTECTED UNDER A THICK BEVELED CRYSTAL ( A SURE SIGN OF QUALITY ) HELD IN PLACE BY A BRASS BEZEL.

ZEALOUS POLISHING TO THE BEZEL IN THE PAST HAS CAUSE SOME SMALL BEECHES TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BEZEL, WHICH DO NO IMPINGE ON THE OPERATION OF THE INSTRUMENT OR ITS APPEARANCE.

THE BACK OF THE CASE IS STAMPED WITH MANUFACTURERS DESIGNATED NUMBERS ( PLEASE SEE THE PICTURES).

THE INSTRUMENT HANGS BY MEANS OF A SUBSTANTIAL BRASS HANGING RING TO THE TOP OF THE INSTRUMENT.

THIS IS A LOVELY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE  ITEM, UN-RESTORED AND IN FULL WORKING ORDER.

I AM OPENING THE BIDDING AT A VERY LOW £ 20.00.

I WILL ACCEPT PAYPAL, BUT PREFER PAYMENT BY CHEQUE OR POSTAL ORDER
