This time my interesting item is seasonally appropriate.
As the autumn storms roll in it seemed like a good moment to feature a barometer.
Both an attractive item and yet able to be used each day a barometer can become a focal point in the home as you pass by and `give it a tap`. It can be strangely satisfying to mark the pressure on the dial and observe the changes thoughout the day.
The barometer pictured dates from between the wars and is high quality mahogany with silvered dials, most likely bought from one of several first class house furnishers in Glasgow. Being an aneroid (vacuum) barometer helps reduce the concern of open mercury tubes in the home and the thermometer is conveniently marked with both fahrenheit and centigrade scales.
The barometer has attractive art nouveau style inlaid decorations on a stained olive green veneer and measures a very neat 22" (56cm) in height.
