This barograph was designed and manufactured in the German Democratic Republic, circa 1980 by Fischer and purportedly used by the British Meteorological Office for obserations in the late 20th century. A metal plate fitted to black crackle finish base indicates Type 207MO and serial number 3508. This instrument was made for professional/offical use and is typical of that era where form, function and accuracy were more important than aesthic design. The interesting movement arrangemet is extremely accurate, easy to calibrate and responsive to even minor pressure movements and would be an ideal and economical barograph for a serious weather observer. Set in a two glass mahogany hardwood case with a hinged lid there is a neat slide-out chart drawer to left side of the base.
Six months supply of weeky charts supplied together with a reprinted copy of a pamphlet by Negretti & Zambra showing interpretation of various chart recordings.
346mm wide x 175mm deep x 175mm high.
