A Very Good Victorian Barograph - Bevelled Glass For Sale
A Very Good Victorian Barograph
Offered is a superb quality mahogany cased barograph. Although unsigned it is identical to others by Negretti & Zambra.
The barograph stands on a shaped plinth with a drawer at the front opening to reveal storage for the papers. The 5 bevelled glass top hinges back to allow access to the main barograph mechanism. In the centre is a 7 bellows stack acting on a counter weighted arm which is connected to the main arm via a link. In the centre of the brass plate is a turned brass knob for adjusting the arm position on the drum. The clockwork drum contains a 8 day movement which runs well and keeps good time. To the front of the drum is the original ink bottle with its stopper.
Condition: Cosmetically the barograph is very good. The brass retains most of its original golden lacquer. The bright steelwork has some surface rust spots. There are a few very small scratches to the top glass. Mechanically all the levers and linkages work well. The clockwork works well keeping good time. The barograph reacts well to changes in pressure.
