Holesale manufacturing opticians and scientific instrument makers. They specialized in standard meteorological instruments for observatories, recording meteorological instruments, spectacles and folders, opera, field and marine glasses, prism binoculars, microscopes and telescopes, meteorological instruments, barometers and thermometers, etc. The dial is marked with the company name and around the edge: STORMY RAIN CHANGE FAIR VERY DRY.
