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.
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".
