This is a french barometer. It has great patina on it. It measures 6 1/2 inches round. It say tempete (storm), pluie ou vent (wind or rain) beau temps (weather) and tres-sec (very dry). It has been in storage and i have not watched it to see if the parts move.
So you may have to fix that. But it is a great decorative piece of history from france. Please contact me if you have any issues.
