English Barograph in a 5-Glass Mahogany Case

English Barograph in a 5-Glass Mahogany Case English  Barograph Short  Mason %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
A restrained and plainer barograph than usual by Short & Mason Ltd. Circa 1921.

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 the nib arm operating movement which has its capsule hidden within the mahogany base.

The top crossplate is engraved with the maker's name reading "SHORT & MASON LONDON. MADE FOR A.& N.C.S. LTD. WESTMINSTER". The brass baseplate also has a 'Pen Set' knob for adjusting the height of the nib on the chart. The nib is refilled when the chart is changed weekly from its front-mounted glass ink bottle and dipper.

The rear of the baseplate has a vertically mounted, silvered reference chart for forecasting the weather against the trend left from the ink trace on the drum chart.

The timepiece movement is also wound weekly by removing the top cover to expose the fixed winding key and the cylinder platform escapement which can be regulated for 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.

Short & Mason Limited was founded in 1875 by Thomas Short and James Mason. They were based in Hatton Garden, London and continued until 1969.

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.
