M448 Stick Barometer
Fluted pillar stick barometer with painted scales on tin, signed
Geo. Ley Birmingham. The solid mahogany stick tapers slightly towards the top which is then surmounted by a dentil moulding and vase shaped finial, all in solid mahogany.
This barometer is very similar to one shown on page 43 in the book
Stick Barometers and is extremely rare and early.
The scale has not been restored but it could be
stabilized and/or restored if required.
A picture of the back showing part of the construction and the way the tube is held in place is also shown.
