Cistern barometer, made from wood of the 'Temeraire'
The cistern barometer is a simple design consisting of a circular glass tube, the upper end of which is sealed and the lower end open and immersed in mercury. Its design is typical of domestic barometers available in the mid-19th century. This example is made of oak said to come from the stern post of the 'Temeraire', which fought alongside Nelson's 'Victory' at Trafalgar.
