What a beautiful
instrument to adorn the walls of your home or office. The Cape
Ann Barometer has a precision barometer featuring French dials
and displaying pressure in millibars, inches of mercury and traditional
nomenclature. A thermometer and hygrometer are also present on
the dial. Measures 10" in diameter and available in solid natural
oak or stained mahogany (shown).
An early glass
barometer, dating back to the 17th century, is one of the few
antique scientific instruments still popular today. The handblown
glass accurately forecasts weather hours in advance. Fill with
colored water and check the weather by looking at the level of
the liquid in the spout. A high water level in the spout indicates
a low pressure area: approaching storm. A low level indicated
high pressure: nice, fair weather. Comes with a brass dropcatcher
to catch fall-out of extremely heavy weather fronts, such as severe
thunderstorms. The water bottle hangs from a beautiful brass and
wood stand that will create a conversation in any room. Size:
12 1/2" high and 6" diameter.
Renaissance, scientists discovered the principle that weather
was influenced by air pressure. Our handblown weatherglass (above
left) is a true replica of early 16th and 17th century domestic
barometers. It functions as well as it did centuries ago, unfailingly
indicating changes in atmospheric pressure. Fill with colored
water and check the weather by looking at the level of liquid
in the spout. A high water level in the spout indicates an approaching
storm, while a low level means nice, fair weather. Comes with
a Brass dropcatcher to catch fallout of extremely heavy weather
fronts, such as a severe thunderstorm. Mounts easily to any wall
Size: 12 1/2" long and 4" deep.
water barometer (Item# WA1262) is destined to become a favorite.
While it includes a graceful weather glass, this unit also features
a thermometer/hygrometer at the top of the unit to add that extra
bit of function. It features a mahogany stained hardwood base
and a glass dropcatcher to collect any dribbles from those very
low pressure days. Measures 17 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 4 1/2".
barometer is a great way to monitor what's happening with the
weather. This precision unit features French instrumentation,
shows pressure in inches of mercury and traditional nomenclature,
and measures 4 3/4" in diameter. Available in mahogany stained
hardwood (shown) or solid natural oak.
has a long history of building quality weather instruments of
outstanding value. The quality shines through in the solid brass
casing and spun aluminum (shown) or black mat faces used in these
instruments. Measuring 6" in diameter and 4" deep, they look great
alone or in multiples. Plan ahead with the Predictor barometer.
With it's traditional display (Rain /Change/ Fair) alongside numerical
measurements (inches or Hg), You will never be surprised by bad
weather. Specify altitude if you are above 2000 feet.
A banjo shaped
weather station gracing the hallway has always been a New England
tradition which we are happy to carry on. This classic instrument
features a brass colored bezel surrounding the hygrometer and
barometer, while a graceful thermometer extends up the spine.
Displays relative humidity, barometric pressure in inches of mercury
(inHg) and millibars (mb), and temperature in degrees F and C.
The instrument measures 23"H by 7 1/2" W. Available in mahogany
stained hardwood (shown) or solid oak.
may look strange and have no electronic displays or measurements,
but it is no less accurate in predicting the pressure trends than
the most expensive digital or analog unit. It operates on pure
physics. When the pressure drops, water in the spout rises and
poor weather is expected in the next 12-24 hours. Fair weather
is illustrated by a low water level in the spout. Educational
and fun for the whole family.
