Beautiful Early Edwardian Barograph

This is a lovely early Edwardian Barograph in excellent working condition. Almost certainly made by Short & Mason of London just prior to WW1, it is engraved on the mechanism with their 1904 patent No. 22556 which descrbes '(The) use of aneroid underneath slab and easier to adjust'. The weekly clock is engraved with the reknowned 1902 patent. These instruments were often supplied to UK retailers, such as opticians and also exported to their sister company, Taylor Instruments of Rochester, New York- see extract from their book 'Weather' 1912.

A quantity of weekly charts supplied together with a fresh bottle of recording ink.
