Usually barometers and such may come attached to wooden boards, a ships wheel or just a round wooden disk. Some are contained in a brass case as the previous post.

This one was mounted inside a circular horn. Makes for an interesting display either on the wall or shelf.

Don’t see too many of these a-round.

As usual a bit of cleanup and a repair to the mechanism.

I returned the metal to a polish finish from the original which also had some red tape affixed to the circular pat of the horn tubing.

The dial is approximately 3 1/4 inches and the horn diameter is about 4 3/4 inches

dis assembly of the mechanism
some rust on the case to deal with, the mechanism is in good shape
rear case
the horn mouthpiece
the red tape on the tubing.
the dial is in excellent shape after a cleanup
one side of the pivot had to be reset, it was knocked from it’s intended position. No idea how it got like than other from a sharp knock
An aneriod barometer, the silver circular chamber is sealed and pressure changes are linked to the to the pointer shaft through levers and finally a tiny chain the is wound around the indicator shaft. Cleaned and oiled all rotating and moving pieces.
re assembly, the circular part of the tubing was plated metal.
finished for now.

Some touch up polishing and cleaning to be completed, fasteners for the bottom of the case needed
