It’s an antique measuring instrument having an element sensitive to pressure, a metal box, named barometric capsule. The capsule contracts and dilates for changes of pressure and its movements are transmitted to an indicating pointer by a mechanical system. The inventor of this system was Bourdon, a French business man (Paris 1808-1884), that had established in Paris in 1835 a factory for make steam machines; in 1849 he invented metallic manometer, and in 1853 he invented a kind of aneroid barometer.

W S Cowell Ltd was incorporated in 1900 to take over the businesses previously carried on by Walter Samuel Cowell in the Butter Market, Market Lane and Falcon Street, Ipswich. A business of printing and stationery was established in 1818 by the Walter's grandfather at No 10 Butter Market. Between 1826 and 1830 the business acquired additional premises in Market Lane. The introduction of the 'Monotype' system and the new print techniques encreased their business, that had a considerable development from 1900 to 1945.
