Hallmarks
FB&S - Gold 18ct - London - 1895

This is a miniature pocket barometer / altimeter, which would have been used as a pocket watch fob charm. The bezel ring rotates freely to set the altitude on the chapter ring, which is calibrated up to 6000 feet

The barometer scale is calibrated in inches of mercury

The gold housing is almost pristine, with only a few very insignificant pin prick size dents

Diameter, excluding neck and ring: 29mm
Total weight of instrument: 19 grams

These charm barometers are exceptionally rare in perfect working condition, and this one works like the day it was made - it is, in every respect, in MUSEUM CONDITION

To construct, by hand, an accurate and working aneroid barometer in a 29mm case is a masterpiece of instrument making, and it was achieved 120 years ago

The original Morocco leather case, lined in green velvet and silk, is also in very good condition
