QUALITY ANEROID BAROMETER
Attributed to Hulot, Pertius & Naudet, Ca 1880
SIZE 5 1/2 H x 5 1/2 W x 3 3/4“ D
WEIGHT 1 lbs 5 oz
PRESENTED is an exquisite French made brass barometer that was made for the English market.
The quality of the cream colored porcelain dial and fancy Edwardian lettering with flourishes bespeak its very high quality.
What is interesting is that it is unmarked, for such a high quality piece, but its styling, and complicated and finely

glass lens, blued moon and arrow center pointer, with a second movable brass pointer for watching the changes take
place. There is a ring on the top for wall hanging or it stands on two turned brass legs for desktop support. We have been
comparing its readings to the published barometric pressure for our location and it is spot on. On minor bruise from
an earlier time exists at 30.5 inches.
