The barometer has a'break-arch' pediment and brass finial. There is chequered stringing to the glazed door and also to the tube cover. The register plate sitting behind the hinged glazed door is silvered brass and is signed " Stampa & Co, Fecit, London".
The plate reads from 28 to 31 inches and is engraved Stormy, M. Rain, Rain, Change, Fair, Set Fair, Very Dry. There is a vernier over the tube. In addition there is a spirit thermometer fitted to the plate which reads from -50 to 110 degrees F and alongside is engraved " Extra Cold, Freezing, Temperate, Sumr Heat, Blood Heat".
There is a shallow cistern cover, with a rosette in the centre, which contains the glass bulb cistern. In all that time I have never seen another example of a stick barometer which a similar tube cover. COLLECTION: Item situated between Watford, Herts & Pinner, Middlesex.
