Wonderful antique French Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest style hand carved walnut 26" wall barometer with thermometer on enamel plaque, solid hardwood with leaves & fruit or berries and all in fabulous condition! Barometers not quite as much of a household staple as they once were with all of the weather data available on our smart phones and such but they really do make attractive decorative accents! I've added two others this week, one Black Forest with foliage & bird figure, the other also carved but with more of a Neo-Classical look to it and this one. This just in from France, carved in solid, heavy hardwood that looks like it must be walnut. The original thermometer mounted on an enamel plaque, the barometer itself framed in shiny polished brass with text in French and a maker stamp on the back. Not an expert on barometer marks so I've not been able to find the maker but it does read "". A fabulous decorative accent, don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. Possibly a tiny nip or two to the wood but I see no larger chips, no cracks or warping to the solid hardwood case. There is a bit of denting around the brass frame of the barometer face. All of the barometer mechanism appear to be intact and in fine working order but we've not tested it. There are two tiny hairline cracks in the thermometer enamel plaque, just below the bulb of the thermometer itself. See pictures for measurements.
