Admiral Fitzroy’s Barometer



Circa 1900, unusual, stylish, and interesting – an oak cased barometer by Admiral Fitzroy.

Fitzroy was a pioneering meteorologist and established what is now known as the Met Office

Admiral Robert Fitzroy devised this form of barometer to help people working at sea or in coastal villages to anticipate bad weather.

The solid oak case has a  moulded top and base, and a glazed front. There should be  two adjustment wheels on the case to move internal pointers, but these are missing. Inside features a barometer, thermometer (broken) and a gauge for measuring the atmosphere, with various charts explaining the different functions.

A very attractive item with faults which could be easily remedied.
