Weather Glass, French Finish Wooden Wall Plaque. Made of glass, brass, pine and medium-density fiberboard (MDF), the striking item has a distressed French finish. Essentially a water barometer, this ingenious device operates on the basis that lower atmospheric pressure predicts the onset of stormy weather. The instrument is sometimes called a Goethe-Barometer or Goethe-Wetterglas: a legacy of the German literary and intellectual genius Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) who constructed such a device. When atmospheric pressure is low, the water in the spout rises above the water level in the main part of the glass. The water in the spout drops when air pressure increases, signalling clearer weather. ***THIS PRODUCT IS SHIPPED DIRECTLY FROM AUTHENTIC MODELS*** Size: 15.5cm x 7.9cm x 41.9cm.
