18th Century French Louis XVI Giltwood Barometer

About

Wonderfully decorative period carved giltwood and painted barometer & thermometer with elegant styling. The combined barometer & thermometer originated in France, dating from the Wonderfully decorative but no longer working Louis XVI period of the last quarter of the 18th century. The workings are enclosed by a giltwood case with carved designs of foliage at the bottom and a tied bow capping the thermometer shaft. Although the barometer & thermometer are no longer in working condition, they still retain their original glass fronts, tubing, & painted gauges. The charts are elegantly inscribed with atmospheric 'conditions' in French, the majority are still readable.
