 Kew Pattern Barometer. This is very rare as few exist in pristine condition. These barometers were suspended on brass gimbals and protected by a frontal wooden bar , to avoid damage in rough weather. Temperature and height ( above Mean Sea Level tables had to be used do correct the actual pressure read to MSL.
