Dimensions & Specification

Note about dating: It is very difficult to date barographs precisely as they followed the same form from 1880 to 1960! We estimated this item to date from c1910 but researching the company indicates it MAY well have been earlier (c1890).

Dimensions: 375mm wide, 235mm deep, 216mm tall.
