I picked this one up a while ago because I fell in love with it (I have that problem with stuff). Barometer appears to be in good vintage condition as shown. The brass case measures about 8 inches in diameter.
Barometer seems to be working fine. It's been hanging in my office and accurately predicted storms, so I guess it works. Thermometers are in excellent condition although the liquid has separated on the centigrade side. I've had this problem befoire and it can usually be fixed by applying ice to the liquid at the top and driving it back down. Also of note, this one does not use mercury thermometers, so it can safely be shipped and used anywhere.
Case is in good shape with normal age wear. Beveled glass is intact, just a bit dirty. On the inside of the glass, theres some dust or dirt specs, but it could probably be cleaned by someone familiar with these devices. Please make sure you look at the detailed pictures. Please make sure to ask any questions you may have and see all of the detailed photo's before offerding, thanks...
Shipping to the lower 48 is fixed. Additional costs to AK and HI.
No other way to put it; this is one heck of a rare and really awesome clock. You will look long and hard to find another one this nice. I'm starting this one way below what it's worth and let's see where it goes.
Condition: Unless otherwise stated, all timepieces are running well, although I haven't cleaned or adjusted them. All are used and old. Normal wear and tear is to be expected. Returns (less postage) will only be accepted in the case of a gross error in the listing. I would strongly suggest that they be evaluated by a competent professional to ensure accuracy. Clocks often require adjustment due to movement during shipment. Payment: All payments must be in US$ within 7 days of the close of the sale. I can accept most forms of payment including PayPal. If you want to use a method besides PayPal, please contact me in advance to make arrangements. Insurance: Shipping insurance is automatically included on every shipment and is included in postage cost. Questions: Please ask all questions before the sale closes.
International Shipping Restrictions: I use Auctiva shipping insurance and they impose restrictions on certain countries. Please see www.auctiva.com for a current list. If you have a question about international shipping, please ask. Thanks for looking. Please visit back as I’ll be listing lots more in the coming days.
