    Product Description


    A lovely conversation starter and a fun example of early scientific measurement, this Galileo thermometer and barometer set from Chaney Instrument engages the eye while monitoring the weather. Designed for approximate interpretation of temperature and general prediction of fair or foul weather, the set features glass instruments that rely on the principles of buoyancy and air pressure for their function. In the thermometer, the brightly colored internal spheres rise and lower with fluctuations in temperature and corresponding density. The ball-shaped barometer shifts liquid to and from its curved spout in response to changes in the air. Both pieces are beautifully shaped, and the barometer features a lovely etching of the Earth’s continents. A wooden base makes the set easily displayable on desk or bookshelf. Delightful for gift giving, the unit measures approximately 8 inches long and stands 8 inches high.

    This handsome unit uses a blend of old and new technology to interpret the weather. The Galileo thermometer is filled with a clear liquid that suspends multiple colored weights. As the liquid within the weights changes temperature their density changes allowing the weights to rise or fall. The lowest weight at the very top of the Galileo reflects the temperature. The glass water barometer indicates changes in the air temperature. A low fluid level in the glass spout generally means fair weather while a higher fluid level in the glass spout means foul weather approaches.

Great office piece. It sits on my desk all day. The globe does require water and a little set up but it comes with the tools needed. You have to provide the food coloring though unless you like a clear ocean. Thermometer is sealed and accurate. Overall a nice piece

Agree with Michael's review - great office addition and cool conversation piece. The wood is golden oak and not cherry, as shown in the picture - but still very nice. Followed the instructions and no problems - just requires you provide water (distilled recommended) and some food coloring for the globe. The thermometer is pretty accurate and the barometer is as well, especially as when I set it up today happens to be stormy. It's cool and I like it - nice piece for $30! :)

Great addition to my office. The wood is more of a golden oak than the picture. Used three drops of food coloring in a glass of distilled water for the globe. I followed the directions that came with it for filling the globe and it all went as planned. The temperature seems pretty accurate compared to my digital gauge.
