M447 Stick Barometer

Solid carved stick with a rococo shell at the top and strings of leaves and hops hanging down each side. This is in the style of James Ayscough (working 1732 - 1763 in London) but is almost certainly later as the silvered brass register plate, which is signed Sydney E. Letts, London, appears to date to 1850 from the style of the engraving.

In spite of this, this is the only barometer I have ever seen with this exceptional carving (apart from one Ascough), and is exceedingly rare.
