Weather Glass

A charming Tabletop Weather Glass by Authentic Models. An unusual and interesting find, would you believe that this instrument accurately forecasts the weather hours in advance, just by using atmospheric pressure? The weatherglass invokes the spirit of times past when people used simple inventions to guide their daily lives, often with highly satisfying results. Suspend it from a hanger and use to plan your day. Alternatively, place it on the wall as a beautiful piece of decor. More accurate than the weather man? Definitely!

Quality Materials

Made with glass that has been hand-blown by master craftsmen, this weather glass is filled with coloured water to approximately one inch above where the elegantly shaped spout joins the glass body, and can accurately tell if rains or storms are on their way.

Early Science

By the 17th century, square-riggers carried a weatherglass next to the compass on the chart room table. Ships needed to know if they were headed into calm waters or a storm. However, they were not just used by sailers and explorers. Weather glasses were popular with the aristocracy of the day, and King George III was said to have collected them.
