Barograph. In a Light Oak, 5-Glass Case. Circa 1910 Barograph  Oak %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
A superior quality, beautiful and totally original barograph.

The 8 day duration, drum timepiece clock movement with its original and top-mounted, Cylinder, platform escapement. Contained in a revolving 3 3/4" diameter brass chart drum. This is mounted upon the top base tier as is the barometric cradle with an 8-tiered stack.

The superior nib on the end of the floating arm is refilled when the chart is changed weekly from its side-mounted glass ink bottle and dipper.

The timepiece movement is wound weekly by removing the top cover to expose the fixed winding key and the platform escapement with protective horns that can be adjusted for regulating the timekeeping.

There is also a chart-change holding bar to lift the nib away from the drum when necessary and for transit.

The light oak, heavily constructed case has a 5-glass cover that simply fits over the top tier of the moulded base and is lifted off to operate the device. All of the glass panels are thick and bevelled and the base contains a double-depth, chart drawer.

Barographs are not only attractive but also provide a good deal of fun when operated. They also provide a lasting record of local weather conditions.

Cosmetically this device is exceptional for its age and is undamaged. It has aged beautifully and it has a wonderful glow to the case. It is wholly original but I have fitted a new nib because the old one was worn out! It will be supplied with a years worth of high quality charts and ample non-blotting ink. It will be fully overhauled and guaranteed and it is this work that adds considerable value and provides peace of mind. If maintained correctly, this device will serve you indefinitely.
