Information about the maker

This came to us from a weather enthusiasts' home. It was retailed by Gradko in the 1980's but we strongly suspect it was 'New-Old-Stock' based on the quality English made movement it contains. It was sold as 'Met Office Pattern'.
Dimensions & Specification

Side hinged case, as shown in the large photos.

Unlike many of the later 'Gradko' barographs which seem purely built for functionality, this retains the look and quality of the late 19th / early 20th C models.

Dimensions: 315mm wide, 160mm deep, 200mm tall (handle down).
