Large Art Deco Aneroid Barometer by Weathercraft
For sale, a large and unsually designed Art Deco aneroid barometer by Weathercraft.
This uniquely Deco period barometer is comprised of white and back plastic of rectangular form with curved sides and large rectangular central dial measuring 27 to 31 inches of barometric pressure. With black plastic pointer and brass set pointer which can be hand operated from the front of the instrument.
This super looking barometer can be either desk or wall mounted.
There is little information to be found on the Weathercraft Company. My inclination is to suggest that this it is of American manufacture but nevertheless, the design makes it an interesting and very unusual example. A similar barometer was included in the renowned collection of the late Edwin Banfield who wrote numerous insightful guides on the subject.
