An unusual Georgian mahogany Wheel Barometer c1820 signed C.BELATI of Burton.

It has long been believed that the vast majority of people in England at this time were illiterate. This apparently included barometer makers, as this and a twin barometer were clearly from the same hand, yet signed two different ways! C.BELATI & C.BELLATTI.

This would also indicate that barometer makers of this time used specialist engravers to finish their dials. The spelling of all the weather conditions being standard and well known. The spelling of the maker's name however was not. The maker presumably verbally told the engraver how he wanted the dial engraved and then told him his name ... the rest is history!!!

The barometer being in exceptional condition and having architectural pediment with original brass spire over marquetry flower paterae. A long spirit thermometer with silvered and engraved scale, the base flanked by two conch shells in hardwood and charred satinwood. The solvered brass dial with very fine hands and concave cast brass bezel, over base with boxwood and ebony stringing. The movement tested.

Fully serviced and guaranteed for one year.
