Heart-shaped Barometer, 6 7/8” high, 6 ¾” across widest point, 2” deep. At the turn of the last century, the delaHubaudiere factory used this form as a clock case, and, as here, a barometer case. The finely-detailed figures are typical of their best work at that period; the laurel wreath at the top frames the coat-of-arms of Brittany. This is completely original, and would be a charming addition to a desk or shelf of books. Ca. 1900, in perfect condition. $500, plus $30 for shipping.
