The "Barometer" by Karl Theodor Eichler, a pupil of Ernst August Leuteritz, is based on the magnificent watch cases of the Rococo period. The summer putto is located at the top in the sunlight, while the winter putto with a cape under the case seeks protection. On one side the barometer is washed by waves, on the other side it is surrounded by leaves. Water flows down from above and freezes to icicles below the barometer. Two other putti are hidden here, spring and autumn, warming by the fire. The asymmetrical design and the elegantly flowing forms from nature show clear influences of Art Nouveau. The staffage in soft tones and the reliefs highlighted in gold underline the playful cheerfulness radiated by the precious barometer. Limited to 15 pieces.
