ANTIQUE PHBN NAUTICAL BRASS HOLOSTERIC BAROMETER MADE IN FRANCE WITH CASE IN EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION. Case bottom/back: 4-1/8 diameter. The case is padded inside to protect the Barometer, and is made of wood covered with a thin piece of leather. The leather is coming off a lot on the bottom and somewhat on the top. I’m not familiar with the workings of barometers, so I don’t know about how it’s functioning. The glass crystal is beveled at the outside and can give some of the wording a mirror-like effect. It is in excellent condition as is the brass housing. I didn’t polish the brass because some people prefer a nice patina. I Googled this barometer and was not able to find another one, which leads me to believe that this model is extremely rare.
