Antique wheel barometer with inlays measuring about 38″ x 10″ wide. The wood frame and inlays are in very good condition considering age but the old finish is dark and has crazing. The upper thermometer appears to be ok and the metal scale for therm is in good condition.
The lower barometer dial is worn and missing a few screws but in good condition for restoration. The pointer or metal hand on lower dial has oxidation. The brass bezel around the dial is in good condition as is the upper and lower wavy glass. The dial is signed flombardini? One glass tube remains in the rear and a couple of glass weights and pulley. Don’t know what may be missing or damaged in that area. The brass finial that would be at the top center is missing. Overall, i believe this would be a good antique barometer for restoration or leave as is and hang it on the wall for decoration. Click to view image album. More than just a pretty picture.
