Fabulous antique Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved wood 27.5" wall barometer with "Fruits of the Hunt" themed dog, wild boar and game bird figures among an array of reticulated vines & foliage! Wonderful decorative accents, these fine old Black Forest barometers always bring an undeniable charm with them. The back panel is solid and appears to be in Linden wood, the most commonly used in Black Forest carvings. The barometer face itself is card and the text is in French, likely a Swiss Alps work. One of several wonderful antique wall barometers that we're listing today and in the weeks ahead, I guess the changing of the weather had me fixated on these aesthetic decorative instruments :). Be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. Possibly a nip or two but no splits, cracks, damage or repairs to the wood case. The enamel plaque and thermometer are not original but of the same age & style (you can see that the enamel thermometer plaque is a bit smaller than the space on the wood case. Everything appears intact and in working order but we've not tested it for accuracy. See pictures for measurements.
