Dollond London Antique Stick Barometer C1870
- Price £3,200
- 47 inches / 1.2m tall
An exceptional carved oak antique stick barometer by a very fine maker. Made possibly as an exhibition piece, it demonstrates the very high quality of their work. The body of the barometer features a beautifully made max/min alcohol and mercury thermometer, the bottom of which is held by a fine faceted brass clasp.
Overall it is exuberantly carved with flabo finials to the top and bottom. One can imagine this in a large victorian study, and is of generous proportions at 47 inches long and 14 inches wide at the top of the carved architectural pediment. The scales at the top are 6 inches wide and 8 inches long.
