Beautiful, all original, pre-1917 russian revolution barometer. A russian language expert informed me that the russian language on the barometer uses an alphabet that predates the 1917 russian revolution. So this barometer is easily at least 100 year old. The dial is still in very good and clear condition. The russian is easily readable. The glass has no cracks and is clear with only one minor stain rust? It is about 3.5 inches in diameter across the face.
The barometer does not work and i do not have access where i live to someone who repairs barometers, so i do not know why it doesn’t work. But hey, it is most likely over 100 years old! And it certainly looks really cool and unusual and has tons of history locked up inside of its mysterious past. I’m downsizing and so want to pass this on to someone else who will appreciate it.
