Barograph. In a 5-Glass Mahogany Case. Barograph  Mahogany %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
A good quality and totally origianl barograph retailed by Harrods of London. Circa: early 20th century.

The 8 day duration, drum timepiece clock movement with its original Cylinder, platform escapement. Contained in a revolving 3 3/4" diameter brass chart drum. This is mounted upon the top base tier as is barometric cradle with an 8-tiered stack. Between the drum and stack is a vertically-mounted mercurial thermometer with an ivorine scale.

The superior nib on the end of the floating arm is refilled when the chart is changed weekly from its side-mounted glass ink bottle and dipper.

The timepiece movement is wound weekly by removing the top cover to expose the fixed winding key and the platform escapement hatch which can be slid open for regulating the timekeeping.

There is also a chart-change holding bar to lift the nib away from the drum when necessary and for transit.

The mahogany 5-glass cover simply fits over the top tier of the moulded base and is lifted off to operate the device. All of the glass panels are bevelled and the base contains a double-depth, chart drawer. The brass chassis plate is stamped "HARRODS" who were the retailers.

Barographs are not only attractive but also provide a good deal of fun when operated. They also provide a lasting record of local weather conditions.
