Description

Rare large Volta battery (53 cm height) :  three glass columns contain 35 copper-zinc pairs alternated by cloth discs (two columns are of pale yellow color and a neutral color). A top hat runs through the three glass bars and crushes the metal couples. A solid brass urn-shaped weight helps to maintain the position of the discs. the upper contact is closed by a clamping screw with ivory sphere . It ‘s really hard to find a battery of  this size and in good conditions (we also have smaller batteries for teaching).
