SMITHS oak cased aneroid barometer with 4 inch dial, 1946

This is an excellent example of the classic SMITHS wall hanging barometer and also the earliest we have seen, dated 18 December 1946.

It features a rack and pinion aneroid movement, developed by Smiths in association with Shortland Bowen just after WWII. It has an aluminum dial, chromed bezel and flat glass set in a turned honey oak case.

The barometer has been fully disassembled, serviced, cleaned and polished. It is supplied in excellent vintage condition and full working order. It is currently set to read pressure at sea-level but will be supplied with instructions on how to adjust to local conditions together with guidance on reading and forecasting.

Dial diameter 4 inches (100mm); overall diameter 180mm; depth 55mm
