Negretti & Zambra were the foremost Scientific Instrument makers of the latter 19th and early 20th Centuries, producing a large volume of precision instruments. This type of barometer was produced at public expense initially for fishing ports and Life-boat Stations and hence was assembled entirely using brass screws and without glue. Such was its popularity that subsequently many similar ones - “Admiral Fitzroy’s Storm Barometers" - were produced.
