Use this beautiful desk ornament to forecast the weather. The crystals inside respond to atmospheric changes to show the oncoming weather outside. Set on a beautiful beech wood base, this stunning globe is a useful desk ornament.
Barometers like this one were first used by sailors in the early 1700s. By interpreting the changes in crystal formations, they were able to predict and plan for days of smooth sailing or stormy seas. With this beautiful glass barometer, you too can forecast the weather. The crystals change with temperature, meaning that you can look into the glass to predict cloudy days, fog, wind, frost or sunshine. A historic ornament, you could use this on your desk at work or at home to spark conversation and be a point of beauty.
Not recommended for children under 14 years of age.
