J. Davis, Cheltenham. c.1825-30.

A very rare Regency period inverted banjo barometer, the elegant figured mahogany veneered case with detachable thermometer box inset into the trunk. The case is surmounted by a swan-neck pediment fitted with an urn to the centre. The 6" silvered dial is well engraved with a scale reading 28-31" and the maker's name 'J. Davis, Cheltenham'.

(There are two J. Davis' listed in Cheltenham at this time, father and son, working together from their Cheltenham shop. More is known of John Jnr. who was apprenticed to Jacob Abrahams of Bath, see 6" barometer listed above. As was fairly common at the time he travelled around the country opening 'pop up' type shops for a few weeks at a time, he visited Derby for the first time in April 1830 where, after closing the Cheltenham shop in 1844, he relocated to and started the renowned firm Davis Derby)
