Vintage Black Forest Carved Walnut Barometer Thermometer Frederik Preisler NR

VINTAGE GERMAN BLACK FOREST CARVED WALNUT WALL BAROMETER AND THERMOMETER. It’s made of intricately carved walnut from the Black Forest region of Germany. The bottom portion has an aneroid barometer with thick beveled glass. The barometer is marked with the name Frederik Preisler, a Danish distributor of scientific equipment. The top portion houses a thermometer with a white metal face that reads in degrees Celsius. The carving of the wooden case has a leaf and scroll design. This vintage barometer/thermometer measures about 18 1/8″ long and 9 1/2″ wide. It has a metal ring on the back side for hanging. The wooden case is stamped “844″. The back cover of the barometer has an angel and shield mark (see last photo). I’m not sure when it was made. Most similar pieces I’ve seen pictured on the internet were said to date from the 1920’s or 1930’s, but I don’t believe this one is quite that old. Condition of this vintage barometer/thermometer appears to be VERY GOOD. The finish of the wood shows some light wear in places but looks very nice. The thermometer appear to be fully functional and in great condition. It does not contain mercury, so no hazardous materials. I can’t tell if the barometer is working or not. The needle has moved a little bit over the past few days, so it might be OK. Overall, this vintage barometer/thermometer looks great and displays well. It would look wonderful hanging in any home. Please take a close look at the many photos I’ve provided and judge condition for yourself. See my other listings. For more great items! Closeup of Bottom Portion. Closeup of Top Portion.
