SOLD – The principle of the Nephoscope goes back to 1845 (originated by Aime) but realistically invented by Carl Gottfrid Fineman: an instrument for measuring the altitude, direction and velocity of clouds.

The instrument is not exactly easy to use but various instructions / descriptions are available on the internet.

This particular type was produced and is signed on one of the tripod feet, ‘F.B. & S (1932) Ltd. 341 /44’.

Very clean and free of chips to the enamel, the compass working perfectly, it appears almost unused.

Contained in mahogany case with locking hooks, handle and a facsimile copy of instructions for the 1919 pattern of ‘Erecting and Using Weather Bureau Nethoscope’.
