An original example of a Scottish 19th Century Named Ship's Barometer. This is a barometer from the two-masted Yawl, the "Bon Ami, that was sailing in Scottish waters and based at Ferrydean, Montrose, Scotland. To find out more about the Yawl type of vessel please go HERE. The barometer came with some detailed information that states the date of the ship's career as being around the 1860's to the end of the century. The skipper of the boat was David Coull and an interesting sidenote is that another relative by the name of Charles Coull was killed on board when lightning struck the mast.
Barometer in excellent condition
The barometer is in excellent condition but I have not tested it. The white face is in fine shape and is maker/location marked to "Dundee". Diameter of the barometer is 5 inches. Will supply paperwork that comes with the barometer. A nice display piece and example of Scottish maritime history.
