A barometer is an instrument which is used to measure changes in air pressure. These changes are then used to predict the weather. There are three main type: Water, Mercury & Aneroid. This is an Aneroid Barometer. This type of barometer has a small, evacuated cell at its heart. As the air pressure changes, the cell expands or contracts. The overlaying mechanism, attached to a pointer, amplifies these small changes causing the pointer to move.

This is an attractive, thick, wooden example of a vintage barometer. It was made by Diplex and it is marked "Made In Germany" at the bottom.

It measures approximately 13.5cm x 13.5cm x 4cm. It is made of wood and finished with a teak veneer. It has a square-shaped body with curved edges. It has with one central display which exhibits the pressure readings. It has been cleaned and polished and is now ready to hang.

The perspex covering the face has the odd light mark but is generally in good order. It has been cleaned and provides a clear view of the readings.

The face is white and measures approximately 9cm in diameter. The markings are still very clear, easy to read and have no signs of fading. The pressure readings are given in inches and millibars. Uppercase, black fonts occupy the display. It has a clean, black pointer and a second, movable pointer which allows you to easily monitor the changes in the air pressure. The brass bezel surrounding the face has been cleaned and polished.

There is a small recess around the back for ease of hanging. I have had this working in my home for some time and it is guaranteed to work.

This is a good quality instrument with great looks. I am sure you will love having this in your home; alternatively, this would make a great gift.

Upon dispatch, this will be well packed and clearly labelled.
