The Dutch Zaandam clock is arguably one of the most iconic and symbolic horological creations ever made.  It is clearly Dutch, carries clear historical symbolism and is one of the most pervasive reproduction clocks found all over the world.  It resonates the Dutch expereince during the post European Protestant Reformation period in the late 1500s to early 1600s. The Mennonite church emerged during this period in North Holland.  In the Zaan region these reformed Christian believers weaved their clock and woodworking skills with their faith.  The Zaan region, near Amsterdam, became an industrial area in the 1700s, inviting the establishment of this unique style of clock making.  Mennonite freedom of religion characterized this climate, which influenced the maxim typically found on this style clock,  “Nu Elck Syn Sin” – “To each his own  Nu Elck Syn Sin is Old Dutch, which is no longer in use and not recognizable in the modern Dutch language. However, it is believed to be in reference to the Mennonite desire for freedom of religion and to practice their version of a “reformed’ faith in peace amongst other Reformation movements.  The Mennonites were persecuted during this time.

VICTORIAN MERCURY BAROMETER (ref 1705)
£245.00

Victorian Fruitwood cased  Mercury Barometer.  Pedroni, Bridge Street, Shrewbury, 1830-1850  A mercury barometer has a glass tube closed at one end with an open mercury-filled reservoir at the base. The weight of the mercury creates a vacuum in the top of the tube known as Torricellian vacuum. Mercury in the tube adjusts until the weight of the mercury column balances the atmospheric force exerted on the reservoir. High atmospheric pressure places more force on the reservoir, forcing mercury higher in the column. Low pressure allows the mercury to drop to a lower level in the column by lowering the force placed on the reservoir. Since higher temperature levels around the instrument will reduce the density of the mercury, the scale for reading the height of the mercury is adjusted to compensate for this effect.
