Conventional bi-metallic movement of the Rototherm pattern, all contained within a pressed metal flared case, silver grey enamel finish.

Condition: The dial with minor darkening at centre, otherwise appearing clean. The metal case might have been re-painted. Serviced, good working order and generally good condition.

Comments: Large metallic wall barometers are for some reason scarce. This one has good aesthetic qualities as well as utility.

Rototherm invented the bimetallic thermometer and patented it in 1932. By 1934, the company was known as “The British Rototherm Co Ltd” which enables us to date this instrument accurately.
