M738 American Stick Barometer
Ripple moulded, or tramp art, stick barometer by D.E.Lent of Rochester NY in wonderful original condition. The case on these barometers is frequently dark and grungy, with the varnish rough and bubbled. This one has been taken back to the original finish giving the highlights of the ripples a beautiful warm red glow. The silvered brass register plates have a vernier which is operated by a thumb screw mounted at the top of the barometer, and the original mercury thermometer. At the bottom of the case the glass pot cistern is quite visible. A fine example of this type of barometer.
