The beautiful antique Black Forest Barometer was carved during the Art Nouveau period in the southern German region of "Black Forest". It features a beautiful Swan and has many Black Forest typical decoration - but clearly shows the influence of the Art Nouveau time period.
It ist hand carved and made out of solid fruit wood.
The barometer face itself is in German - and says: Sturm - Regen oder Wind - Veränderlich - Schön Wetter - Beständig Translated it means: Storm - Rain or Wind - Variant - Nice Weather - Constant
The Veränderlich is not - as some retailers indicate - a brand name, but rather part of the Barometer scale. The Thermometer could have been replaced in former times.
Very good antique condition. No splits, cracks, damage or repairs to the wood case. Everything appears intact and in working order but we've not tested it for accuracy. Please see pictures
Measurements: 19 by 10 inch (Thermometer: 5 1/2 by 1 inch /// Barometer: 4 inch in diameter
