George Adams, London. c.1787-95.

A fine and rare Georgian stick barometer by this much sought after famous maker. The well figured mahogany veneered case with moulded architectural pediment and central turned brass finial. The silvered and engraved scale plate fitted with a manual vernier and is signed with the rarely seen ‘G. Adams, London, Instrument Maker to his Majesty and Optician to the Prince of Wales’in the cartouche. The exposed tube fitted with the original cistern behind the turned hemispherical mahogany cover.

(George Adams (Junior), born 1750-died 1795. He was apprenticed in 1765 to his father, also named George, inherited the business in 1773 after his father's death and continued to work at 60 Fleet Street until his death in 1795. With the inheritance of the business he succeeded to the title of Instrument Maker to George III and in 1787 became optician to the Prince of Wales(George IV). It was said that his instruments were at least as good as those of his father and he wrote many articles, dissertations and essays on scientific instruments.)
