This is probably the earliest barograph (in standard form) in existence. Looking at the base plate, the only numbers visible are a '2' & '3'. Very early Richard barographs had a lift-off lid with two hooks at one end & one at the other - as this example. If it is number 23, (& I can see no other numbers on the base plate), then this would be in the very first production run in 1880. For further verification, see attached extract from Richard Freres' London agents dated 1894. Above the two numbers is a small circle with 'RF Paris' engraved inside. Beneath the working clock drum on the base plate there is an engraving 'Richard Freres Constructeur Brevettes a Paris.
