Charles Howarth. A fine and well presented angle barometer.

Charles Howarth was a prolific maker of stick and angle 'Signpost' barometers, this being an exceptional rare example of the latter.

The barometer has a fine mahogany frame, printed paper plate which was favoured and signed Charles Howarth *Fecit* Halifax. There are two exposed siphon tubes with bulb cisterns and a separate silvered brass thermometer scale with mercury tube.
