Approximate Maximum Dimensions (when laid horizontally as in the above image):-

  • Height: 11cm (including Bakelite ‘zero’ button)
  • Width: 9cm
  • Length: 10cm

The galvanometer is quite heavy, and made from metal (probably cast aluminium, and bakelite). It is in very good cosmetic condition for its age, with just a few surface scuffs and scratches.

It hasn’t been tested in earnest, but the pointer seems to be moving freely and is very sensitive. It would make a fantastic desk ornament for the vintage office, garage or man cave! A wonderful addition to a collection of scientific curios.
