Elegant and very decorative giltwood and painted wood barometer and thermometer from the end of 18th century. The crest is a delicately carved and gilded “panier fleuri” when the bottom is ornated by a “feuille d’eau ” decor. The barometer has been fitted with a new mercury tube and is therefore in working condition.
This barometer would be a gorgeous decoration for any wall.
