Vintage Shortland SB Aneroid  Barometer With Brass Finish

This is a very nice Vintage Shortland SB Aneroid Barometer With Brass Finish.

This compensated  aneroid barometer is in very good condition, with no chips or cracks. It has a complementary, oval shaped, plastic onyx stone effect surround. There are a few marks in the brass and the face dial.

It appears to be working but I’m not sure as to it’s accuracy. It has both an inches and millibar scale, and was made to be wall mounted.

Approximate Dimensions

  • Base Width:  18.5cm 
  • Height: 3.2 cm
  • Base Depth: 14cm 
  • Barometer Diameter: 10cm (4")

A wonderful looking barometer to complement any home décor!

The photographs have been taken with and without flash, hence the difference in colour.
