Description Storm Glass weather station
The cloud-shaped storm glass with beech wood base is, above all, a beautiful object. It is a modern interpretation of the chemical weather glass, also known as "FitzRoy's storm barometer". Nowadays, it is more of a charming curiosity than a precise weather station, but in the 18th century, sailors often used it to predict changes in weather conditions. Admiral Robert FitzRoy in particular, promoted the storm barometer as a means of forecasting emerging storms and used it during his voyage as a meteorologist with Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle.
This historic device responds to atmospheric fluctuations. It works indoors and outdoors and is best placed on a desk, mantelpiece, shelf or windowsill.
