29cm Storm Glass Barometer with Wooden Base Description

This 29cm Storm Glass Barometer with Wooden Base makes a wonderful unique unusual gift for those who love something that is not only useful but also a little quirky!

This admiral Fitzroy storm glass is a barometer that come into general use in the early 1700's.  Sailors would attach this instrument to their mast on their ships and then rely upon it to forecast either good weather or poor conditions at sea.  Admiral Robert Fitzroy (1805-1865) was commander of the HMS Beagle and also participated in the Charles Darwin expedition (1834-1836) and in that time conducted a detailed study of the storm glass.  He refined the chemical formulation and published observation guidelines as below:

Clear Liquid - Bright and clear weather
Cloudy liquid sometimes with small stars and crystals at the top - Cloudy weather and often predicts thunderstorms and rain.
Small dots in the liquid - Humid or Foggy Weather
Large Flaky Crystal - Cloudy skies, snow in winter
Threads of crystals at the top - Windy Weather
Crystals at the bottom - frost maybe coming

It really is a mystery how this barometer works but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in the weather patterns activate the crystals inside.

Full instructions on how to use your Storm Glass Barometer are included.

29cm Storm Glass Barometer with Wooden Base Measures 29cm Tall and comes with a wooden display base.

**Please note this item should be handled with care and kept out of reach of children as it contains flammable liquid therefore should be kept away from combustible material.  In case of breakage clean the spilt liquid with warm water and mild soap.**

    I ordered this as a gift for my son's Godfather (men are always so hard to buy for!) as I thought it would be a novel present. The service was fantastic, with very speedy delivery and the item well packed.the barometer itself is lovely, was very well received and is now up and running. A great gift, at a great price, from a great company!

    29cm Storm Glass Barometer with Wooden Base 05 Sep 2014
    We have a Galileo thermometer the same size and thought they would look good together. They do. It\'s a bit too early to comment on the accuracy though as it needs a few weeks to settle down apparently.

    I am very pleased with my purchase and with the speed it was delivered to me. I would shop with A1 gifts again in the future. We have a storm glass at work and I have wanted one for a while myself. It is still settling down, but I am sure it will not be any problems

    An interesting item 13 May 2014
    An interesting item. Goes with the Galileo thermometer in the collection of interesting ancient ideas. Hasn't been in use long enough to determine whether it will have any use weather-wise when in our dining room!

    I have not found the ideal place for this item yet but I am looking forward to observing the changes once the liquid has had chance to settle in its final position in the house.
