Weems & Plath Sorensen Stormglass


The brass Sorensen Storm glass is a mysterious weather predictor that is sure to intrigue. Versions of the storm glass have been in use by sailors since the mid 1700s. Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, used a similar instrument aboard the HMS Beagle during his historic voyage with Charles Darwin in the 1830s. After 250 years, how the Storm glass 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 different crystal structures inside the sealed glass chamber indicates changes in the weather two days in advance. The glass chamber is encapsulated in a beautifully crafted polished brass cylinder. This version of the Storm glass is made by the Danish company, E.S. Sorensen. It can be displayed freestanding or mounted to a boat bulkhead or wall using a mounting bracket that can be purchased separately. (ES 55 02 01)
