Impressive early 19th Century mahogany Marine Stick Barometer in essentially original condition; the loop suspension over finely engraved ivory register plates, signed by the maker and bearing rack-and-pinion operated vernier. The protecting hinged door bears a Fahrenheit mercury thermometer. The slender trunk, with bowed sides, conceals original capillary barometer tube which terminates within three-part cylindrical cistern cover. The barometer is suspended on hinged brass gimbals with unusual height adjustment capability.

Newman was perhaps the greatest innovative scientific instrument maker of the 19th Century. His business, at 122 Regent St., London, which he originally founded in 1812, was acquired in 1862 by Negretti and Zambra, which platform enabled them to secure their renowned leading place in 19th Century meteorological instrument making.
