Vintage mid century English Shortland Brothers teak and brass barometer.
This wonderful Shortland Brothers mid century modern barometer is a perfect classic vintage wall hanging weather man for your mid century home.
Brass cased bezel and fitted in a teak veneer, it works perfectly but does show some tarnishing on the brass and could use a polish.
This is an Aneroid Barometer. This type of barometer has a small, evacuated cell at its heart. As the air pressure changes, the cell expands or contracts. The overlaying mechanism, attached to a pointer, amplifies these small changes causing the pointer to move.
Measurements are 6.75 inches in height x 9.75 inches in width.
By nature, the background color on any div will only show for the length of the content. If you'd like a dividing line instead of a color, place a border on the side of the .content div (but only if it will always contain more content).
