Cooke & Kelvey's Historic Indian Timepieces
Gilt Brass Double-Sided Combination Desk Weather Timepiece: This late 19th century timepiece is formed by twin ovals joined by a rotating circular handle with a turned column between them. The left-hand case has a Roman timepiece dial, with visible lever platform escapement to the rear; the right-hand section has an aneroid barometer set in front and a Fahrenheit thermometer at the rear. The ovals are mounted on a bow-ended onyx and gilt brass base.
