A Victorian silver cased aneroid pocket barometer with altimeter scale C. and G.E. Asprey, London, 1892 With 1.75 inch circular silvered register signed C. & G.E. Asprey, 166. New Bond St., LONDON beneath Improved Scale, Compensated and stamped registration number 149175 over triangular trademark device to centre within concentric scale calibrated for barometric inches divided into tenths and annotated with the usual weather observations within rotating outer scale calibrated in feet from 0 to 12000 and divided for 50 foot intervals, the pocket watch type case with suspension ring enclosing knurled crown for adjustment of the altimeter scale, marks for London 1892, diameter 5cm (2ins). The firm of Charles Asprey and Sons was originally founded as a silk printing business in Mitcham Surrey by William Asprey in 1781. Charles Asprey relocated the business to London in 1841 to form a partnership with Francis Kennedy, a stationer based at 46 Bond Street. This partnership lasted until 1843 after which the business was continued by Charles Asprey alone until he took in his son, also called Charles, and relocated to 166 Bond Street in 1847. In 1872 the business name was changed to 'Asprey and Son' followed by 'Asprey and Sons' in 1879 when his other son, George Edward, joined the firm. The name changed again to 'C. and G.E. Asprey' in 1888 before finally becoming 'Asprey and Company' in 1900. Condition report disclaimer
