Pocket Barometer by J.Brown of Glasgow
Pocket Barometer by J.Brown of Glasgow. This is a beautiful example of a pocket sized walkers barometer made in Glasgow by J.Brown and dating to around 1895. It comes in its original Moroccan leather hinged case which was originally red and has a green interior. The barometer measures 4.5 cms in diameter not including the holder on the top. It has a lovely silvered dial and is very clean and crisp with no damages. The brass case is totally untouched and is tarnished as a result. It is in good working order having been tested in a pressurized bag. The winder on the top adjusts the outer dial which has the height in feet. It may have had a ring originally. A lovely original example the outer case closes but has seen better days and is a little warped in places, but it has done its job and protected the inner barometer.
