Antique French Metal/ Copper Figural Barometer

This charming little fellow stands holding a small barometer. He dates from 1900-1910 and comes from Paris.

The cherub is delightful with tiny little wings and delicately outstretched hands. He has a reflective look on his face as if contemplating the temperature displayed. He stands on a little base with four curvy feet. The figure is made of a mixture of hard metals (laiton) which have been accented in copper and brass (to give a bit of reflective shimmer to highlighted areas of the figure.

The barometer is working, measuring the hot temperatures of summer in North Carolina as I write this. It measures: 6" tall (total), 4" tall (cherub alone),the bottom diameter is 2 1/2", the barometer itself is 2 and 3/4" tall. It has passed the many years of time and use in very good and solid condition.

It is an unusual small piece, perfect for desks or small tables.
