Authentic Models Wall Plaque Weatherglass Natural Barometer

It was a bit awkward up to the moment our lovely guest wanted to know exactly what was the liquid in the weatherglass. Serving a chilled Pinot Gris, we joked that it only worked with a genuine Vinter's Reserve. Admittedly a roundabout way t...o start a conversation on the weather. But the ice was broken, so to speak, and our guests toasted to a most ingenious invention. The Weather Rises and Falls Weather forecasting is just like it was some three centuries ago. Called the "poor man's" barometer, this decorative hand blown glass instrument accurately forecasts weather hours in advance, just by using atmospheric pressure. By the 17th century, square-riggers carried a weatherglass next to the compass on the chart room table. The weatherglass invokes the spirit of times past when people used simple inventions to guide their daily lives, often with highly satisfying results. Installation: The weatherglass should not be hung in the sun or near a radiator, as excessive heat prevents proper operation. Once hung in place, do not move it unless necessary. A small piece of blotting paper can be placed in the drop catcher to absorb the drip from the spout in stormy weather. How to fill the weatherglass: Hold spout under tap and fill with a thin stream of water. Water level of the bottle itself should be approximately one inch above the place where the spout joins the bottle. If used outdoors, fill with rubbing alcohol during winder, to avoid freezing. Use a drop of food coloring to achieve the desired color. Consult the weatherglass everyday. The weatherglass accurately forecasts weather changes 8-12 hours in advance. The rise and fall of the water level in the curved spout indicates weather conditions as follows: Slow rise to top of spout: Indicates approaching storm 8-24 hours in advance. The storm may or may not change its courseRapid rise to top of spout: Indicates approaching local storm. If the storm changes its course, this will be forecast by immediate fall of the water to normal level. Bubbling out of spout: Indicates rapidly approaching local storm only a few hours away. Rapid fall below top of spout during storm: Indicates that the storm is nearly over Holding steady halfway up spout: Indicates clear weather Note: Hot weather will make water level rise about 1" Disregard this as "forecast", as it is caused by sudden increase in temperature. read more

The mud and sandstone walls hid the multistory palace of Imam Yahya, built in the 1930s. From one of the terraces where we were in...vited to dine in the evening we could look down some 1000 feet into the valley and the lights of the village. The floor was covered with bright carpets, pots with plants were everywhere, and the light came from candles set on tripods. Over chicken and lamb with lentils, followed by cake and cardamom tea, the Imam explained that the tripods were left by a British surveying expedition in the twenties, mapping the deserts and hills of Yemen. We were impressed by the fact that the metal and wood, combined with saddlers leather straps, still looked fresh and new, obviously a combination of quality and form follows function. read more

Comes in an aged bronze finish Ideal for placement along walkways Die-cast aluminum with textured linen glass panels Includes an 8...-inch in-ground stake Uses Wedge T5 light bulbs Lantern-style light with mission shade Whats Included Light Fixture, 35 Inch Lead, Cable Connector, Bulb, In-Ground StakeWhats Not Included Cable, Transformer Description Installing landscape lighting is easy, but keep in mind that it requires more than just the lighting fixtures. Landscape lighting systems also require: Transformer - The transformer is the power supply for your fixtures. It plugs into a standard household 110v outlet. The total lamp wattage of all fixtures connected to a transformer must be less than the capacity of the transformer. To determine which transformer you need, add up the wattage of all lamps and add 10% more as a safety factor. Example: If youre installing five light fixtures rated at 20 watts each, you will need a transformer that can accomodate at least 110 watts. (TRANSFORMER SIZE = TOTAL WATTAGE OF LAMPS x 1.1) Cable - This is the electrical wire that runs from your transformer to your individual light fixtures. Determine the length of cable needed by measuring the distance from the outlet to the farthest fixture location. Adding branches of cable is recommended for lights that are not located in a straight line from the transformer to the farthest fixture, so include the length of cable that branches off the main line. Remember: always leave a couple extra feet of cable per fixture for potential repositioning. Cable Length Chart read more
