Wow ! The biggest barometer ever! It measures 55 inches tall by 16 inches wide, and has a main dial of 14". The model standing with it holds a standard 37" x 10" 5 dial banjo barometer....not a miniature. It was made by Anthony Pagani of Nottingham, England, (working 1818-1825, at Goose Gate, Nottingham) and has a swan neck pediment, over the hygrometer, over a bow-front thermometer. The clock has the original dial, hands, and bezel, but the mechanism has been replaced, as usual, and the main barometer dial, also with original hands and bezel, is below. There is a rectangular level beneth, engraved with the maker's name and city. The case is of figured mahogany (on pine) with cross banding at the edges. A truly exceptional piece!
Maximum dimensions : 55" x 16"
Date : c.1820
