Product description

Smiths vintage metal / Perspex advertising barometer - Hamer & Sons (Paints), Mitcham
 
A c.1950s vintage advertising barometer by Smiths, c.1950, originally intended as a promotional item for a business in Mitcham (south west London), in metal with a clear transparent acrylic (Perspex or Lucite) surround supported by a late Art Deco style chrome foot, measuring approximately 12 x 12 x 4cm (4.7 x 4.7 x 1.55in) excluding the knob in the centre of the dial; the surround above the dial is marked "R.J. HAMER & SONS (PAINTS) LTD. / MITCHAM 2064-5".
 
There is some corrosion, marking and general wear to the aluminium back cover, whilst the dial is marked, spotted and perhaps discoloured, and there is some pitting and age wear to the chrome foot and trim; there is slight to moderate surface wear to the Perspex surround. Please note that the barometer does not appear to be in working order (the needle hardly moved over a period of several weeks prior to the item being listed for sale, and the small adjusting screw at the back is very worn and damaged), and is therefore sold as a collectable or display piece only.
