- DESCRIPTION -
    The River City Renaissance Water Barometer is a historic piece of art that quickly indicates changes in barometric pressure. The barometer is composed of antique wood spools found in abandoned textile mills in England. The spools were used to hold thread, cotton, and yarn that were spun into fabric. The spindles and wooden base date back to 1907-1913 and were used in a factory in Calder Valley, Yorkshire which wove the thread into a cotton tartan fabric.
  • Each barometer has a cotton sticker from 1917 placed on its base. These stickers were made in New York in 1917 and found in a cupboard with the original invoice.
  • History of the Barometer
  • Renaissance scientist, Evangelista Torricelli (1608-1647), discovered the first barometer, proving that air pressure was subject to change. It is believed that Goethe, the famous German playwright, developed this simple but effective barometer using the principles established by Torricelli.
  • The Weatherball quickly indicates any changes in atmospheric pressure. The air trapped by the liquid maintains a steady pressure. When high pressure and good weather are approaching, the liquid is pushed down the spout. When low pressure and bad weather invade your region greater pressure trapped inside the Weatherball causes the liquid in the spout to rise. If liquid spills out of the top you should take shelter!
  • The glass barometer is made from mouth-blown glass in the United Kingdom. As with all antique and hand-made items, the colors and decorations vary slightly. We consider this to be a special part of their history and character.
