A Barograph by Gluck

this barograph is in very good condition- the case is made from heav gauge steel,with cast base, with heavy mesh grille over sensory mechanism-and integal carrying handle- all very heavy. Glass front observation panel, good condition everyw I assume a 7 or 8 day clock mechanism. Glass panel hinges to left to reveal inner mechanism.

Mechanism is driven by clockwork, key present, and the rotation speed can be calibrated- it does work, I have tested it- Model number stamped onto base plate of clockwork- Gluck- barograph and recorder, model number 7D R8D, made in England. All internals ion very good clean condition.

Lower arm adjustable, mechanism for this perfect,

Very heavy duty case- looks as if made for a military naval type ship or something of that sort- painted battleship grey to match!

As you can tell, I know nothing of these things- so its up to you to ask the right questions-- I acquired it as part of a 'lot' of other items in a recent sale-

Will pack in send in the UK for £9.50, anyw else to price up at cost- its quite heavy,

Dimensions - length 44 cms, height 33cms incl carrying handle ( integral casting), width 20cms incl splay of feet.

Has logo label adhering to front - which looks like a diagonal ' Z' on its side or possibly even an 'N'-- very hard to be sure- someone out t will know and tell me I am sure!

Age---- no idea- condition very good, but quite dusty-

Sold with no reserve at all, no use to me-- it has to go-

paypal preferred.

Any questions, please ask.


I have tried now to revise the item description- eBay seems does not facilitate this, not sure why,( maybe because t have been bids already?) but offers this addendum as an option-

So it seems it is not a barograph, but a thermograph- read the questions below, this will help clarify what it is- I am going on the advice of BOB, ( thank you) but once again, it is to sell, satisfy yourself completely please before bidding- I do not know what it is frankly. So its up to you. All other descriptive details as to size, condition etc stand-

Its just the type of instrument this is that seems to be in question- interesting---

So lets call it a THERMOGRAPH then-

Further internet based research has revealed the following-

this may be a Hygro-Thermograph in fact-

it seems to be able to record temp. and relative humidity-

which would make a lot of sense- it came out of a violin makers workshop.

Hope thats of use-but I stand to be corrected?



we all agree now- thank you

kindly stop e-mailing about this point now. I think I have responded to this aspect in a more than adequate way.

If you do not like the look of it, do not bid.

Any other valid points glady taken and responded to- thank you. Anyone else pointing out yet again that it is not a barograph will be ignored.
