This item is a HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST BAROMETER with HORSE DECORATION. This barometer is quite unusual with some rather uncommon decorative elements for a Black Forest item The frame is heavily carved with fern like leaf decoration and the horse figure above the barometer face is also an uncommon theme-they tended more towards bears, chamois, foxes, etc. rather than domesticated animals. The barometer face is paper and is marked in Dutch. The thermometer is porcelain and is marked in celcius. The barometer measures 22" by 11 1/2". It is in excellent condition. This was obviously a souvenir item intended for the Dutch visitor.
