Adie Stick Barometer
A few years ago, we sold a very unusual ‘lighthouse’ barometer by Alexander Adie, celebrated Edinburgh instrument maker.

We now have for sale another stick barometer from the same stylistic family, made c.1840, at which time the firm was known as ‘Adie & Son’. Like the original, this example has an ultra-slim mahogany trunk, which does not widen at the top like most sticks but, unlike the first, it has a rounded rather than a square top. The exposed tube has a wooden sheath round it and an unusual lobed rectangular cistern cover.

It is an exceptionally elegant piece of domestic decoration.
