Encinitas, CA

Refurbished art deco matching Barometer & Temperature/Humidity Gage Set mounted on a hardwood base. Both instruments were built by the world famous Airguide Instrument Company. Based on the quality, design, and materials used, this unit was built in the mid-1900's. The solid brass cases, spokes, base and pen funnel are mounted on a 12” x 6” x ¾” oak plank with heavy felt bottom. Both brass cases have 3” convex (domed) plastic windows and the faces are signed “Airguide” plus "MADE IN U.S.A. BY AIRGUIDE INSTRUMENT COMPANY CHICAGO". The Temperature scale is in Fahrenheit Degrees and the Relative Humidity scale is 0% to 100%. The Barometer pressure scale is in 26 to 32 pounds per square inch. Both brass cases have moderate pitting on the top. The unit measures 12” wide x 6” deep x 7” high overall. Included is a 5” hand made rare wood and brass retractable desk pen (with a black/broad “Cross” cartridge) which rests in a solid brass swivel funnel (holder). The pen, funnel, and wood base were added recently and the total weight is 3½ pounds. All the gages appear to functioning reasonably well, but there is no assurance that it will after shipping.
