Unusual Barograph by Russell, Norwich

This is quite a departure from the typical barograph format and arguably an improvement on the similar version made by Barigo, as this example has a sturdy glass dome and a traditional clockwork movement by Gluck. Made in the early 1990s and with only a limited production run, this instrument has become quite a collector's item - in fact the only one I have ever owned. Easy to operate, the barograph uses smaller type recording weekly charts (with traditional ink nib or modern fibre type) and are still available to buy on-line. Also included is a re-printed pamphlet by Negretti & Zambra interpreting various chart readings. The barograph is a lovely instrument and would sit comfortably displayed on a desk or shelf.

175mm high x 136mm diameter.
