The mini version of our popular storm glass.

The storm glass was a method of predicting the weather promoted in the late 1800s by Admiral Robert Fitzroy.

The sealed glass tube contains a liquid which changes appearance over time reportedly predicting on coming weather changes. Admiral Fitzroy distributed these storm barometers to small fishing communities around the British Isles. They were used to determine whether it was safe for the ships in port to set sail.

This neat 15cm storm glass adds a touch of seafaring charm to your room and makes an interesting conversation piece.
