Engraved Barometers

We in Britain are fascinated with the weather; I bet we talk about the weather in our daily lives without even thinking about it, only today when I had a delivery on some Barometers indecently, I mentioned to the delivery driver how it felt cooler today then yesterday!

Today we can get the news about the weather everywhere, from mobile phones to the internet. I get my weekly update on the weather from the weekly country file forecast on a Sunday on BBC1, yet I still check the temperature and pressure by tapping the pressure gauge on my Barometer in the living room to see if it moves during the week!!

The household barometer that we see as decor in the house is an aneroid Barometer, originally invented by a French engineer in the 19th century called Lucien Vidie. All the equipment to make the barometer is housed in a metal box called an aneroid cell. The aneroid cell is made of different metals beryllium and copper. The capsule is evacuated and a strong spring is inserted to prevent the capsule from collapsing. Small changes in pressure expend or contracts the cell and the movement is amplified by a series of livers to show the movement on the screen. By tapping the screen the lever moves to indicate whether the pressure is increasing or decreasing.

The Barometer makes a great feature in the house and at WineGifts4U we have a range of Barometers and Wall Barometer Clocks including Banjo barometer clocks, mantel barometers and other styles - all of which can be personalised with an engraving plate. Engraved Barometers make a perfect gift that can be given as a personalised gift for a wedding, a retirement or a house warming present for couples.

Mahogany Mantel Barometer Thermometer Hygrometer
I phoned up with a query on the size as the measurements on the web page were unrealistic. The lady immediately gave me the correct measurements and the page was updated. Great delivery service too!
