The Barometer has been an integral part of the British domestic scene since the early part of the 18th Century. Initially a valuable tool in the domestic and agricultural decision making of the British aristocracy, antique Stick and Wheel Barometers, especially the Georgian examples, have now become highly-prized complements to today's fine antique reception room furniture. We trust that our Showroom pages will give you a greater awareness of the styles of fine antique Barometers that can be acquired. For our part, we are able to offer the largest stock of authentic high quality antique mercury Barometers in the world - usually over 50 instruments, alongside fine examples of early aneroid barometers and barographs, all expertly serviced and fully guaranteed operational.

The extensive selection of primarily Georgian Barometers in stock offers a comprehensive and unrivalled range of competitively priced 18th and 19th Century Stick and Wheel Barometers - in the main, London made - together with Scientific, Marine and Aneroid Barometers and Barographs from the 19th and early 20th Centuries.
All Barometers offered for sale have been sensitively restored in order to harmonize the patination on wood and brass as far as possible with aesthetics as well as operational efficiency.
