Comitti Barometers

The Sheraton Stick

H.38.5"(98CM) W.5.5"(14CM)

Comitti remains the oldest traditional barometer maker in the world with a heritage that goes back to Evangelista Torricelli (1608-1647) who made the first mercury barometer in the 17th century. The Sheraton is an excellent example of the more traditional "stick" type instrument which is the style used for some of the very first barometers. Many of the instruments made in Comitti's London workshops have become established as English classics and today are sought after as valuable antiques. This superb presentation is a copy of an original made by Comitti in 1860, and features a mahogany cabinet with feathered veneer inlaid with "rope" edgeline and corner fans.
