Netherlands

Object: Barometer, Huygens (More lots)
Material: Wood
Estimated Period: Second half 20th century
Country of Origin: Netherlands
Condition: Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes

At the end of last century, the Netherlands

Beautifully designed contra-barometer with clear Dutch text. Very functional and decorative.
"Contra" because the red coloured liquid in the more accurate right tube is at the top during bad weather, whereas the "normal" simple mercury barometer is exactly the other way around. (invention of Huygens)
Also equipped with an accurate thermometer, also with red liquid. (80 cm)
Trimmed with tight frame of solid wood without deer head and/or oak leaves. Dimensions 26X110X6 cm.
With tap in mercury tube to allow horizontal transport without mixing mercury with red liquid.
Given the fragility of this barometer, pick up is our preference, if you want us to send the barometer, we will treat it with the utmost care, however any damage will not be recoverable to us.

    Je sais que le lot était fragile , mais le vendeur avait promis un colis de haute sécurité . L'emballage était très sommaire , les tubes ont explose à cause des ondes de choc . manque de soin.

    Totaal onterechte feedback, wij hadden aangeboden om de barometer met iemand mee te geven omdat hij volgens ons de reis bij PostNL niet zou overleveren.
    De koper werd ongeduldig en wilde dat wij hem toch zouden opsturen, wij hebben het zo goed mogelijk verpakt en verzonden. Zoals vaak gaat PostNL niet zacht om met de spullen, want om deze beschadigd aan te laten komen is ermee gegooid.
    Wij hebben duidelijk aangegeven wacht nog even, maar het moest verstuurd worden en dan op eigen risico.
    Nu het inderdaad kapot is gegaan zou het onze schuld zijn.
    Wat ook in nadeel van klant is het bericht dat de barometer in goede staat is ontvangen en later zou hij dan kapot zijn.
    Het is ook mogelijk dat bij het uitpakken de barometer is gevallen.
    Hierbij de reactie een uur eerder van koper. colis arrivé , baromètre tout cassé . Merci

    Na contact te hebben gehad met de koper ben ik er achter gekomen dat het gaat om missende onderdelen, deze onderdelen zijn speciaal en niet door ons als missend gezien. In het oordeel van de koper is de expert van catawiki in gebreken gebleven, maar wij krijgen een negatieve beoordeling.
    Wel gaat de koper het een en ander uitzoeken en zal dan terug komen met een oordeel.
    Wat betreft de late bezorging, op 27 mei is er betaald en op 28 mei is het pakket verzonden, het pakket is afgeleverd op 4 juni in Spanje.
    Koper houd er waarschijnlijk geen rekening mee dat het versturen van land naar land langer de tijd nodig heeft.

    Album voldoet aan beschrijving. Snelle verzending. Goed verpakt.
    Enige minpuntje: betaald voor aangetekend verzenden, is als gewoon pakket verzonden.
