Product Description:

The Short & Mason Compensated Tycos Pocket Barometer is a marvel of precision engineering and craftsmanship, expertly crafted by the renowned London-based company established by Thomas Short and James Mason in 1845. As you handle the barometer, you will undoubtedly be impressed by the intricate detailing and the high-quality craftsmanship that has gone into its creation. The name Short & Mason is prominently displayed on the front, while the back features initials engraved in it that read “C. & G.S. No. 334.” The covering on this item is cracked, but it is not known if this affects the working condition.

Furthermore, it is important to note that a barometer like this would be of great use on a ship. The ability to measure atmospheric pressure allows the crew to predict short-term weather changes and make adjustments to the ship’s course accordingly. This can help to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew, as well as helping to prevent damage to the ship. Additionally, a barometer can also be used to determine the ship’s altitude, which is important for navigation and for measuring the ship’s distance above sea level. In summary, this Short & Mason Compensated Tycos Pocket Barometer is not only a beautiful and valuable piece of scientific history, but it is also an essential tool for anyone who sails the seas.
