OriginBATH
DateCirca 1820
An exceptional late Georgian, mahogany stick barometer thermometer by this recorded Bath maker.

The case with arched moulded pediment is solid mahogany and has a bold turned mahogany cistern cover to the base to give access to the mercury tube.

The finely proportioned silvered brass register plate is signed by the maker above the states of weather which are graduated from 27-31 inches.

The double size sheathed tube is of scientific grade and this instrument was possibly used in a weather station.

Height: 39 in (99 cm)

* Thomas Harris is listed on page 104 of Edwin Banfield’s Barometer Makers and Retailers:1660-1900. He is recorded as a clock and watchmaker at Southgate Street, Bath from 1780 until 1825.
