Our antique barometers are all in working order and in superb condition. Any restoration needed has been performed correctly, and the function and appearance are as the makers intended them to be.
In order to function they have mercury in them. We are just as aware as you are that mercury has a rep for being "toxic," but then so does drain cleaner and insect spray. The question should be how toxic, and under what conditions. Our Technical Section has information on exactly that subject. As you can see, we aren't offering anything that would put you or your family in any danger, but the mercury can always be removed if you prefer.
If you find one you like we want to get it to you in working condition. We have 40 years of experience in coping with the issue, and solutions range all the way from hand-delivering your barometer to draining out the mercury for shipment. We'll work with you to be sure you're happy with your acquisition. Please contact us with any questions.
