Weems & Plath
Brass Storm Glass


W&P # 200 (ES 55 04 01 previously ES 55 01 01)
This mysterious weather predictor has been used since 1750. Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, used the Storm Glass aboard the HMS Beagle during his historic voyage with Darwin. After 250 years, how the Stormglass works is still a mystery, but it is believed that it has to do with the electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms. The appearance of the crystals inside the glass indicates changes in the weather. The sealed glass chamber that holds the crystals is encapsulated in a beautifully crafted brass cylinder.

Weems & Plath Mariner's StormglassWeems & Plath Mariner's StormglassThe Mariner's Stormglass displays Victorian technology in contemporary housing. The premise of the stormglass is that changing weather affects the solubility of the mixture of chemicals in the sealed glass tube. Thought to have been invented by an alchemist for Italian sailors, stormglass instruments have been in use since the 1750s. Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, mounted an instrument similar to the Mariner’s stormglass on the mast of HMS Beagle as a storm warning instrument during his historic voyage with Darwin in the 1830s. Some believe that the changes in crystal structures have to do with the electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms
