This is a liquid barometer where the resulting temperature corrections needed for mercury-free barometers are corrected.
For a reading, one can check the difference between the barometer tube and the thermometer tube.
Furthermore, the instrument still has a camphor glass or a so called Admiral Fitzroy storm glass. Here, the structure of the camphor crystals indicates the weather forecast.
Scale Brass
at the right, there is a brass set pointer to fix the mode that was read.

The whole is in almost mint condition incl. English user manual.

Will be shipped well packaged. Can also be picked up.
