Renaissance scientists discovered the principle that weather was influenced by air pressure. This hand blown Weather Glass is a true replica of early 16th and 17th century scientific and domestic barometers. It functions as well as it did hundreds of years ago, unfailingly indicating changes in atmospheric pressure. The weather glass accurately forecast weather changes 4 to 12 hours in advance.
If the atmospheric pressure is high, signifying good weather, the fluid in the spout is pushed downwards. When bad weather is imminent, the fluid rises up the indicator tube.
The elegant wooden wall plaque with a beautiful distressed French finish handsomely offsets the hand blown teardrop shaped Weather Glass. A solid hand-turned brass hook and handcrafted brass drop catcher with explanatory legend. Fill our weather glass with colored water to approximately one inch above where the spout joins the glass body. Home décor with a story. Click here for more information and mounting instructions.Houzz
