Late 18th century Louis XVI barometer and thermometer. The giltwood case is ornamented with flowery basket and foliage. The dial marked with ink on paper, allows reading of current barometric pressure. It is flanked by cornucopias and draperies. The mercury thermometer underneath measures temperature using the Réaumur scale, which was invented by French scientist René-Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur (1683-1757) around 1730. The Réaumur scale was used in France until 1790, when the Celsius scale was adopted.
