19TH CENTURY (1800s) ENGLISH BANJO BAROMETER 37

19TH CENTURY (1800s) ENGLISH BANJO BAROMETER 37


This is a 19th century (1800s), english (possibly american) banjo barometer. The piece has an overall height of 37″ measuring 10″ at the widest point. It is not in working order. Starting at the top, the components include: a hygrometer (dry/damp), therometer, convex mirror, the barometer proper, setting dial, and lastly, the leveling tube. With the exception of the mirror, which is flaking, all pieces appear complete and in fine condition. The thermometer is covered by a protective pane of glass, all other registers are covered by convex glass. The glass covers are completely free of any cracks, chips or fogging. The barometer retains both needles. The setting dial is functional as is the level. The therometer is lacking the mercury, but is not broken. I’m uncertain if the hygrometer is functional. The piece is not signed.

The case is remains solid. The base wood is pine, with mahogany veneer and a fruitwood string inlay surrounding the outer front edges. There is some loss of veneer at the top edge of the pediment as well as a chip from the wood where the original hanger broke free (see photo), with a few minimal areas of veneer loss along the back edge. Some loss of string inlay to the left edge of the barometer.

A bit of fading to the veneer. Retains the protective rear door, the hinges and catches are in good order. At the top of the bottom in the swoop of the j tube, a portion has snapped off. Acquired from a maine estate.

Admiral Fitzroy Mercury Barometer

Admiral Fitzroy Mercury Barometer


This is a recent acquisition from an estate in the chicago area. It says circa 1880, but i have no idea how accurate that information my be either? The thermometer is obviously a modern replacement and one of the pointers is missing, but it looks like it would be pretty easy to make a replacement?
There’s a small ding on the very top of the case (see pic) but the rest of the case appears to be in beautiful condition. I’m not really sure what kind of wood this is but it’s very tight grained and beautiful. The glass barometer tube appears to be in excellent condition and has no mercury in it at this time. Sorry about the reflections in the pictures!
The approximate dimensions are 36″ high x 6 3/4″ wide x 1 3/4 deep.

It’s in nice condition with no dents, cracks or breaks. No glass cracks, chips or scuffs. The face is not cracked. The face numbers and hash marks are solid. The rotating ring is a bit hard to turn which a spot of oil should remedy. The face rim area has some tanning/browning areas from age, as shown. The top post and loop shows some plate loss.

The case hinge and push button latch work fine. The case, inside and out, shows quite a bit of wear, rubbing and staining, but has protected the barometer well. – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -.

Relisted due to non paying winner. Wonderful antique pocket barometer and compass set. Original leather case with royal purple velvet and satin lining.

Pics came out blue but it is royal purple. Manufactured by swiss maker f. Kuhn, luzern and retailed in london by j. Steward located at 406 strand.

It has a beautiful painted mother of pearl dial which i tried to capture in the fourth picture. Barometer case shows some wear to the finish.

There are 3 screws for adjustment. I have seen the hand change position slightly but cannot attest to the functionality as i do not know how it should be adjusted.

Rare old 19th c antique banjo barometer thermometer hygrometer w horrod london. This fine old 19th century antique english banjo barometer measures approximately 40″ tall and is about 12″ wide at the widest point. There is a working fluid filled bubble level on the bottom. This example looks really fantastic and it displays like a champ but if you examine it closely there are a few minor flaws. The veneer on the bottom is a bit worn as can be seen in picture 4 and there are a couple of minor nicks or cracks in the veneer. The barometer setting key is missing, a piece of molding is missing on the left hand side of the crown. I don’t know if the barometer or hygrometer are working or accurate, i don’t have an accurate barometer or hygrometer for comparison. The mercury filled thermometer measures a few degrees higher than my modern one.The item “Rare Old 19th C Antique Banjo Barometer Thermometer Hygrometer W Horrod London” is in sale since Monday, October 20, 2014.
