An early 20th century 'Pocket Forecaster' made in England by Negretti & Zambra. It is made of 3 concentric celluloid discs printed with wind directions and barometric scale. The discs are adjusted according to current conditions and an accurate forecast for future weather conditions is provided through three little windows in the top disc. The code to decipher what the readings mean is provided on the reverse.
This handy little scientific instrument was originally patented by Negretti & Zambra in 1915. This example dates to around the early 1920s. It is complete with its original box and instruction leaflet.
This piece is in excellent condition for its age.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
