FABULOUS WHEEL BANJO BAROMETER- Wooden opening bezel-Gally London PLEASE NOT THAT MERCURY BAROMETERS CANNOT BE SHIPPED WITH THE MERCURY PRESENT I have decided to dispose of this magnificent barometer which has been part of my private collection and has taken over 30 years to acquire. Such barometers are usually the preserve of the very top specialist dealers and shown at the high end fairs This instrument was made by -P Galley of Clerkenwell London circa 1785. Barometers by this maker are always of high quality but even by his high standards this example is exceptional. This instrument cannot be compared to the 1820s Sheraton barometer which are now available for a few hundred but will certainly be appreciated by the connoisseurs who will realise how exceptional this barometer is. The proportions and overall quality are superb but is has the very rare features of opening and locking wooden to reveal the 10 inch engraved dial. At the top of the barometer is an adjustable hygrometer . present). The sides are veneered horizontally and the edges are barbers pole strung in boxwood and ebony. It is veneered in the finest Cuban mahogany and inlaid with shells.The colour is fabulous. The quality extends to the edge of the dial which is also inlaid the same as the sides. It is in excellent condition and only has a flick of stringing missing (illustrated) The architectural top is original It is 38 inches long,10 3/4 inches at its widest point and the carcase is almost 2 inches deep. Interested parties are encouraged to view this very fine barometer If the buy it now price is paid in full I will deliver,.set up and provide a 12 months guarantee under these circumstances. Should a lesser offer be accepted this will be considered a trade sale with the item sold as described and shipping the responsibility of the buyer. Domestic buyers are requested to use alternative means of payment to Pay Pal I will ship this item worldwide but please note that the mercury will have to be removed and retained prior to shipping. Guesstimate shipping rates are; Europe £50 USA £100 Asia and Australia £160 All good must be paid for in full prior to shipping. Domestic buyers are asked to use alternative methods of payment to Pay Pal if at all possible Wire transfers are welcomed from all countries. Ebay now charge 10% on shipping plus Pay Pal fees.These charges will be added to the shipping costs.All goods will be shipped within five days of payment. Collection is available by prior arrangement All goods paid using Pay pal will only be shipped to the pay pal confirmed address All goods will be shipped by courier ie UPS,DHL,Fed Ex or similar and will be tracked and signed for.I will not ship unless it is tracked and signed for. If you wish to use your own courier I will do all I can to assist. I only charge actual costs incurred for shipping BUT I will use a large box with plenty of packing to avoid damage and this will make shipping (particulary to foreign countries) a little more expensive due to volumetric weight. Custom made boxes,bubble wrap and peanuts all cost money and the cost of these materials will be added to the cost of shipping.For example a Vienna wall clock costs me £15 in materials.I do not charge for my time for packing. Every care will be taken when packing but no liability will be accepted for damage by the couriers and it must be remembered that it is virtually impossible to guarrantee 100 percent that a peice of glass may not be damaged on the odd occasion. Insurance is a difficult and expensive area with respect to antiques and usually has a low ceiling that is why I use recognised tracked and signed for couriers and do not insure seperately.If you wish to seperately insure your item I will do all I can to assist but the responsibility to arrange the said insurance is with the buyer It is requested that all buyers contact me within 24 hours and pay in full within 7 days unless a prior arrangement is made Please do not agree to buy something unless you intend to pay.
