Spectacular hand carved casement for an aneroid barometer, this one has a large-antlered stag or male deer at the crest, and a hunting dog's head mounted at the bottom. Sides are mounted with 2 nicely carved animals, a fox and a hare. The ears on the stag are chipped, but those huge carved wood antlers are still there. They remove and will be boxed carefully for shipment so they aren't broken, and they fit into holes with peg-end so simple to re-install. One of the antlers has been broken before and well repaired. You can see a fine tight line where that old break was. But you won't see it once it's hung in display. One of the finest ones we've had in a long time, and perfect for your ski lodge, cabin, or English Country Manor decor, or even French Country home. The work that's gone into this elaborately carved barometer is truly amazing.
Very good condition for age and type. I've noted a few imperfections in the paragraph above, to include ears on the stag being chipped; one antler has been broken cleanly and repaired. The dog and stag each have realistic glass eyes. Acorns and oak leaves round out the design and enrich it. The barometer is working and the thermometer is undamaged. It is 31" high on the plaque, plus the additional height of the antlers, so approximately 35" tall in all. The case is 11" widest and is 4.5" in depth.
