This is a salvaged Brass and Aluminum Vane Anemometer with a gray body that was once used on a vessel. It is a type of vane anemometer that uses a propeller and a tail on the same axis to measure wind speed and direction accurately and precisely with a single instrument.
Both the vane anemometer and its propeller can rotate freely. The grayish color of the anemometer body can be seen in the attached photos, with white paint splatters also visible on the tail and body. The propeller and half of the pole are made of aluminum, while the bottom half of the pole and base are brass.
Whether you are looking to add a unique touch to your home’s interior or exterior, this anemometer is an excellent choice.
