The Philip Ross Weather Forecaster
6800 Philip Ross Forecaster, £69.99
This intriguing and unique instrument combines a beautifully-made brass and wooden Pocket Forecaster, based on ones developed by leading meteorologists over 100 years ago, with an aneroid barometer set into a wooden desk stand.
Using established meteorological principles, readings from the barometer combined with calendar date and wind direction are set on the forecasters revolving dials and the results interpreted into a simple forecast read from the reverse of the little dial.
The pocket forecaster comes with a velveteen drawstring travel pouch and can be used anywhere (British Isles only) where you have access to a barometric reading and trend.
A real feature piece on any desk or mantelpiece.
Measures 6½ tall.
