The LARGEST Black Forest barometer we’ve ever seen and/or had the pleasure to offer! Here’s a simply magnificent, HUGE 44 antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved oak wall barometer & thermometer station with marvelous hunt themed figures including dog, hare & game bird amidst ornate scrolls & foliate accents and all in fabulous condition! This piece is both massive and exquisitely detailed, painstakingly hand sculpted in old European oak hardwood rather than the more common Linden wood that was used in Black Forest pieces. The bust of a hunting dog mounted just above the barometer face, a hunting satchel on the left and game bird hung on the right as is fresh from the hunt (”Fruits of the Hunt” motif, as it is referred to). Even the thermometer is fabulous with a spiraled reservoir at the bottom and ruby red liquid, rather than mercury, giving it a flare of color. Oak leaves & acorns here & there, scrolled acanthus framing the sides of the thermometer, fruit & foliate top & bottom. 44″ tall & 22.5″ wide! You’ll likely never see another with such an immense size. Very good to excellent condition. A small nip to a leaf or two surely and there is a bit of age fading and/or discoloration to the barometer dial but, as you can see, the heavy, solid oak case & carvings are all in spectacular condition. No damage to the thermometer or enamel on copper plaque to which it is mounted. See pictures for all measurements. Image Hosting by Ruby Lane. We’re easy to deal with. You are very important!
