Details
To stand alone, or complement the ship's bell clock (ref:7106), this brass aneroid barometer and ship's bell are named in tribute to the eminent chemist and meteorologist John Dalton (1766-1844). Living in Cumbria, Dalton recorded numerous meteorological observations, often using his own homemade barometers, and was significant in studies of hydrology and theories on evaporation. He is also famous for his pioneering work on atomic theory.

Solid brass and lacquered to protect their highly polished finish.

Mahogany-stained board measures 12x5.5".

Brass

Brass - an alloy of copper and zinc - is easy to work with, can be polished to a gleaming shine, and it has a high degree of corrosion resistance, making it the traditional choice of metal for use in harsh marine environments.

Chimes Ships' Bells

Before the invention of reliable clocks, time was kept by striking the ship's bell in conjunction with the cycles of a half-hour sand glass. The crew's day was divided into four-hour 'watches', each subdivided into eight half-hour periods.
