An Important Painted Federal Period Architectural Weather-House. (With Provenance)
A painted Federal period hygrometric architectural Weather-house with tall chimney stacks and a balustraded roof surmounted with urns. The house in completely untouched original condition, has painted brickwork and quoined corners with glass glazed arched windows. Within the two principal arches to the ground floor peg-doll male and female figures indicate levels of humidity, the male figure prominent when it is damp and the female when it is dry. My most recent blog has a more detailed description of this item including its provenance.
