Antique pocket barometer in it's original leather case made by Taylor Instrument Companies of Rochester NY, probably in the very early twentieth Century. It is marked "E.D. No. 4128", which may be a model number. This is the heaviest early pocket barometer I have ever felt. It weighs in at nearly 1 lb., or 435 grams outside of it's case. The heavy glass crystal is beveled. The outer dial is adjustable using the crown on the top. It measures 3" wide by 3 5/8" long, counting the crown by 1 3/8" thick.
