M599 American Stick Barometer


Charles Wilder stick barometer of walnut on pine. Glazed door at the top with twin silvered brass register plates behind held in by his typical large round-headed screws. The two verniers are operated by wire pulls projecting out of the top of the barometer - both of which have been replaced.

The silvered brass / mercury thermometer appears to be a replacement as it is by Sargent & Co. of New York, but is contemporary with the barometer.

The box cistern cover has all its original mouldings, and the original iron cistern and glass tube are still present.

A very fine example of an original American stick barometer.
