Dimensions & Specification

Note about dating: It is very difficult to date these barographs as they are still in production. This one is of very traditional form, is numbered and we believe dates to c1960. It may well be earlier (my hunch is it is) but it could be more recent.

Dimensions: 370mm wide, 234mm deep, 227mm tall.
