Victorian Pocket Barometer

$2,500

This 18k gold barometer is so beautiful that we bought it even though it didn't seem to work. We googled "Barometer repair" and found a specialist in Rockport, Maine who took it into her barometric vacuum pressure chamber thingy to diagnose the problem, and surprise! It works fine! You just need to take a little eyeglass screwdriver and adjust the needle so it reflects the barometer wherever you are.
