    Weather measurement vertical. The weather column

    Weather columns with measuring instruments for air pressure, temperature and humidity have existed in public spaces since the second half of the 19th century. Witnesses of technical progress they were at that time and meeting places for recreational meteorologists. In the home, on the other hand, weather measuring instruments still dominate the walls. But it would make sense to use weather columns in the home environment as well: For them, no nail needs to be hammered into the wall, and they can be set up at any time in any desired location.

    Swabian instrument, reconstructed in Saxony

    To revive such a weather column for living rooms - because they very much existed - was recently decided by Fischer Feingeräte GmbH in the Ore Mountains. The Saxon company, which has been manufacturing mechanical weather measuring instruments for more than 60 years and, since 2012, also produces under license those of the traditional Swabian manufacturer Lufft, made use of historical Lufft catalogs from the 1950s. The weather column offered here is a reproduction of a historical Lufft measuring instrument, which Fischer literally reconstructed (the original plans no longer exist) and has been manufacturing since 2014 - authorized by Lufft.

    Individual production. Made of brass, wood and glass

    On a small footprint, the weather column combines four instruments at once: an aneroid barometer to measure atmospheric pressure, a bimetallic thermometer to measure air temperature, a hygrometer to measure relative humidity and a compass to determine wind direction. The base of the column is a wooden pedestal with some weather rules listed on the bottom. The fine mechanical measuring instruments sit on the base, starting with the barometer with a rotating adjustment pointer in a polished brass case. The hygrometer and thermometer are housed in the glass tube above, and the compass is embedded in the brass lid. The weather column is manufactured individually according to order. It is assembled, adjusted, tested and provided with a serial number by hand. In Germany you get the weather column only at Manufactum.
