Admiral Fitzroy (1805-1865) was commander of HMS Beagle, participated in the Darwin expedition from 1834 to 1836. In addition to his naval career, Fitzroy did a pioneering job in the field of meteorology.
The Beagle instrumentation for the Dartwin expedition included several chronometers as well as barometers that Fitzroy used for weather forecasting. Observing the changes that occurred in the liquid that the vessel contained by him called "strom glass" could foresee the changes that would occur in the weather during the crossing.
In a very rudimentary way we could say that a "storm glass" is a kind of miniature planet earth to take everywhere and take a look at the weather forecast.
Made of highly resistant pine wood polished with natural waxes, which guarantees its perfect state of preservation.
It is accompanied by an extensive explanatory booklet to learn to interpret the data that the barometer offers.
