LARGE CLOCK WITH BAROMETER AND FLUTE MECHANISM
Requires revision. Marble, in part repaired. Losses in the organ mechanism. Hand and glass of the barometer, missing. Barometer, possibly later.
Monumental clock with pipe mechanism, the bronzes of fine quality. The signatory Carcany, on the barometer, cannot be identified in more detail. A barometer with the same signature from around 1730/40 is in the V&A Museum, London (museum number 1121-1882). It is assumed that this signature relates to a restoration of the instrument around 1770.
