I have recently learned about Barometers. The vintage Barometers are sexy in design and as in all things vintage, they usually have a story to tell.
For those of you who may have been like me and did not know a about barometers it is a weather instrument that measures atmospheric pressure also known as air pressure or barometric pressure) – the weight of the air in the atmosphere.
Barometers have been around for a long time and there are some very interesting and unusual ones.. There are variations on the storm barometer, such as the Collins Patent Table Barometer, to more traditional-looking designs such as Hooke’s Otheometer and the Ross Sympiesometer. Some, such as the Shark Oil barometer, work only in a certain temperature range, achieved in warmer climates.
Here are two that are currently listed on Ebay that I thought were interesting:I may post more later.But if you know more please feel free to share or if you have one listed please share.
