Owning a barometer in the early Georgian period was considered a basic necessity and even households of the most modest means were often in possession of some manner of the instrument. Also known as cistern barometers, these early stick examples were much more portable than their predecessors and thus they were in high demand, crafted by mathematical, optical and philosophical instrument makers. This high demand for barometers prompted the appearance of many entrepreneurs seeking to capitalize on their popularity. Many inferior models were crafted that were unreliable and cheaply produced. It is a true rarity to find a superb example such as this in such exceptional condition.
