Stick Barometer

Stick Barometer

A beautiful, mahogany stick barometer hand made by E. Marzoratti in Dundee. This great barometer has a lot to appreciate. First, look at the inlay and inset button on the original cistern cup at the bottom.

Next, the eye travels up the stem viewing a beautiful herring bone veneered, mahogany stem towards the top. Looking closely, one will notice the edge of the stick barometer is molded. Continuing up, the eye reaches the top and the beautiful face. The writing on the face is almost hypnotic. Each letter has a flourish and elegance one no longer sees in hand writing today. The face is protected by a hinged door that opens to the right. Finally, one arrives at the broken pediment and finial at the top. While the finial is accurate it isn’t original in our opinion. However, the pediment is. Overall, this is an elegant barometer. It is 39” tall, 5 ½” wide at the pediment, and only 2 ½” deep.  Scottish. Circa 1820.
