Fabulous antique Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved 13 wall displayed barometer, a superbly detailed large bear figure holding the barometer over his shoulder and the original thermometer on milk glass below! The case here carved from one solid block of wood, no joints or seams and all in truly fabulous condition! The actual barometer mechanism is intact but the paper dial is quite worn and I’m pretty confident that it is not in working order at the moment. The original thermometer with large bulb is intact, as is the enamel marked milk glass panel. Rare to find these old bear themed wall barometers, the figure itself has wonderful detail, the barometer housing in the form of a section of log held over his shoulder and his original black glass or metal bead eyes are both there. Posed as if standing on a ledge, the thermometer mounted at an angle with vines or roots extending from the sides. Oh, if only the barometer were in a bit better shape BUT, these are always fantastic decorative accents and it’s truly been quite some time since we’ve found a comparable piece in size, detail and overall condition. Don’t miss it! As noted above, the barometer is not working, the paper dial is aged and beaten up a bit. It surely lost its original glass to protect it for some time and suffered because of it. It now has a flat glass though. The carved bear case however is in great shape, just a few small nips, (most visible to the protruding’bark’ around the barometer cylinder).
