Vintage Shortland Smiths Ship`s Wheel Barometer Brass & Wood Working Order
- Source: eBay UK
This old Shortland Smiths barometer is in lovely condition. The glass is clear and unscratched. The wood suround has a rich colour and shine and the brass spokes all intact and bright. All spokes unscrew for cleaning. The glass suround is brass held in place by 3 tiny round head screws. The barometer can be wall hung or stood as the legs unfold down to provide a prop and fold flat for wall fixing. Some of the wood finish to the back edge is worn and nibbled and could easily be restored with some varnish or colour, but also it`s great as it is. Works very well. Check out my other items !
