Early 1900s Giltwood Barometer from France

This elegant French, dual barometer/temperature has a beautiful giltwood surround with motifs in the Regence style. There are stylized shells and acanthus leaves, and the giltwood has a mixed matte and shiny finish atop red bole.  There is an attachment for hanging at the top back. Wonderful as an accessory anywhere, this barometer, in the early 18th century taste, will bring life to any area.

CONDITION: Minor crease or age separation above temperature gauge. Ageing to gilding with bole showing through, which truly adds to the piece. Barometer not functioning anymore, but temperature gauge does work.

H=39, W=14, D=2 5/8
