This French barometer is of large size, in an excellent state of preservation, and in working condition. The gold leaf has a mellow and deep glow. This barometer is typical of French Provincial barometers of the time. Note the carving of the leafage on the left and the right are not exactly the same; this is typical, as these were all hand-carved.
These barometers make a dramatic statement in a room setting of fine antiques, and have always been very popular.
