Named for Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, who developed a simple but effective Weather Glass Barometer
Accurately forecasts changes in the weather hours in advance
The concept that decreasing atmospheric pressure predicts stormy weather was postulated by Lucien Vidie and provides the basis for this glass barometer, which is sometimes referred to as a "storm glass" or a "Goethe barometer" (named for Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, who developed a simple but effective Weather Glass Barometer). Glass barometers are a fascinating instrument, and a great conversation piece. This traditional barometer is both a work of art, and the perfect instrument for any fine study, library, office or boat.
Our handsome Hand Blown Weather Glass Barometer consists of a sealed glass container and a narrow spout open to the atmosphere. Each barometer is hand blown and accurately forecasts changes in the weather hours in advance. Just fill the barometer with colored water and watch the rising or falling level of the liquid in the spout to indicate weather changes. When the barometric air pressure is low, the water level in the spout will rise above the water level in the body. Conversely, when the air pressure is higher, the water level in the spout will drop below the water level in the body. A low water level signals "high pressure" and fair weather, and a high water level is associated with "low pressure" and poor weather conditions. Using different colors of ordinary natural food coloring dyes, you can match the color of the water in the barometer to any decor. A fill kit is included to fill and empty the barometer. The Hand Blown Weather Glass Barometer measures 9 1/2 inches (24.1 cm) tall, and 4 inches (10.2 cm) wide, 3 3/4 inches (9.5 cm) deep, and weighs 4 ounces (114 grams).
