Rare Mahogany & Walnut Georgian Stick Barometer

Rare Mahogany & Walnut Georgian Stick Barometer Georgian  Mahogany Walnut %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
Burton, London. c.1780.

A superb and rare mahogany and figured walnut Georgian sick barometer by George of London, c.1780. The edge moulded mahogany case is veneered to the front with figured walnut, a very unusual and attractive feature. The architectural pediment sits above a large diameter adjustable hygrometer and brass scale plate. The engraved brass scale plate is fitted with a manual vernier guage and engraved with the maker' name, 'Burton, London'. The exposed tube is fitted with a boxwood cistern concealed behind a turned hemispherical cistern cover. (Please note, the scale plate is polished brass at the moment but can readily be re-silvered at short notice should the buyer prefer).

George Burton is a noted instrument maker whose instruments including two barometers were taken on Captain James Cook's second voyage of discovery in 1772 and by William Gooch on his voyage to South America in 1792.

Banfield's 'Barometer Makers & Retailers, 1660-1900' lists him as working c.1772-1815 from 136 High Street, Southwark, London.

Height 45".
