|Description of the item|
Very attractive late 20th C (see below) barograph in excellent quality mahogany case, by Cassella. 13 diaphragm bellows, with an 8-day English made 'Gluck' movement.
In very good original condition. Running and recording well. Movement checked and oiled.
We acquired this from the family who had received it as a gift from the Met Office in 1983, and it will come with the papers to prove its provenence.
|Information about the maker|

The movement is by Gluck

This one has a felt-tip type marker that doesn't require re-inking every week. It also comes with a box of new papers (and a box of old!).
This item has obviously been well cared for and came to us in good condition. The case was virtually mint and has just been cleaned and waxed. The movement has been oiled. The instrument is running to time for the full duration and recording well.
