The movement has a stack of eight bellows and the brass movement is lacquered, the pen arm is of the pressure adjustment type - all typical of barographs from the late Edwardian era. There is an original ink bottle and holder.
375mm wide x 221mm deep x 220mm high.
A quantity of weekly charts included in various styles, inches/millibars & Sunday/Monday start together with a fresh bottle of recording ink. Also provided, a reprinted copy of Negretti & Zambra's pamphlet describing operating instructions and showing interpretations of chart readings.
