Banded 10” Wheel Barometer

Banded 10” Wheel Barometer

This stunning 10” wheel barometer is a show stopper. As beautiful as the dial is, it is the banding around the outside edge that really catches one’s eye. Normally, three rows of string inlay is the best one can find. However, here we have banding that is normally confined to table tops and drawer edges on a barometer. The barometer is veneered in mahogany but this banding appears to be rosewood. It then has 3 layers of string inlay on both sides of it. WOW!  Overall, the barometer is in excellent working order. Only the swan neck pediment is not original and it is an old replacement. Simply put, this piece is outstanding! Made by John Pensa at 29 Charles Street, Hatton Garden. London. Circa 1830-34.
