1462186058Code 504 Aneroid barometerAneroid barometer made of brass mounted on a turned wooden board with scale of white opaline signed John Barker & Co Ltd Kensington made in the early 1900s. Very good condition and perfectly working. Barometer diameter including board 28 cm - 11 inches, height 10 cm - 3.93 inches.

An aneroid recording barometer, from Greek “without liquid”, is an antique instrument to measure and register values of atmospheric pressure and to understand its changes to forecast the weather. The sensitive element includes 8 aneroid copper capsules, each one on another one, within a partial empty. The deformation, contraction or dilatation of capsules according to pressure changes are amplified by a lever system: these changes are registered on a chart by an inked nib.

John Barker began his career by working as a draper in Folkestone and Dover. The he worked for Spencer, Turner & Boldero, and subsequently for William Whiteley on Westbourne Grove in Bayswater, London. After Whiteley refused to partner with Barker, he decided to open a store on Kensington High Street with Sir James Whitehead, founding Barkers of Kensington, that became a public company known as John Barker & Co Ltd in 1894.
