    I have broken a couple of these thermometers that belong to my husband. He was thrilled when I ordered this one as a replacement. The only thing that I did not like about it is that the pieces are not mounted to the base, and lets face it, two down… In all seriousness though, this is a nice looking piece that looks good in our living room, or smashed on the floor.

    So, my girlfriend is a CNA at a local nursing home. She saw this thing in one of the resident’s rooms and was amazed! She thought it was the coolest thing and just HAD to have one! She snapped a pic and sent it to me to find out what it was and where to find one. A few minutes searching on Amazon and we found it.Basically, it’s a 16th century weather station. The tall cylinder houses a handful of floating balls, each filled with a different liquid, each with a different density so as the temperature rises, the balls rise or fall. You read the temperature on a small metal tag attached to each ball – the lowest one is the temp. Cool huh?There’s also the globe – which works as a barometer. Just fill it about halfway full using water (distilled water is preferred, to avoid leaving hard water deposits on the inside of the globe) and check the level of water in the tube. The higher the water in the tube, the lower the atmospheric pressure, indication a low pressure system and incoming storms! There’s a small syringe and a thin plastic tube provided to fill the globe.Just wet the tube, thread it into the globe, fill the syringe and squeeze. It takes 4-5 to get the globe full.The glass sections fit onto a handsome wooden base, with cutouts for each part.Very cool, vintage conversatoin piece!

    Definitely works, and predicts storms, folks in the office like to peek in and see with it’s doing as they walk by my door. My barometer, though, has condensation inside (I pretend it is clear clouds). I posted a picture: it is your typical condensation (so minus one star) and I’ve even tried swishing the water around to remove it – which it does for awhile and then the condensation comes back. Condensation is on the side facing the sun, whether it is 2′ or 8′ from my window I have that problem. I used distilled water so I wouldn’t get mineral rings inside the globe, as there would be no way to clean it off so maybe that is the problem? Do as another person recommended for filling it – detach the syringe from the tube to fill the syringe – don’t pull the tube out each time you need to fill the syringe. I put the tube in, then placed the globe in a coffee mug (it rested upside down with the rim of mug holding it in position) so I didn’t have to hold it while filling. I didn’t have any trouble with the parts fitting into the base, so though some reviewers did, so not all units are defective. I do recommend that once you’ve filled the barometer, set it in a bowl or other water catching device for about two weeks to observe it and ensure it won’t overflow. It took me about that long to figure out how much water should be in the tube based on the fluctuations of air pressure in my area, and though it never overflowed, there was a time I was convinced it would have done so had I not been there to remove some of the water out of the tube (I rotated the globe and got it to flow back into the base unit).
