|Antique French Industrial series Horizontal Boiler timepiece and weather station by Guilmet.
A wonderful piece in excellent condition, silvered and gilt bronze on a marvellous rouge marble base.
The automaton part of flywheel, governor and drives are powered by a massive independent movement within the boiler itself.
There is an eight day key wind movement to the left and an aneroid barometer to the right. Between these is a thermometer.
