Antique Hygrometers

The Weather Store carries many fine antique hygrometers. One of the early uses for hygrometers was in the wool trade. As wool was sold by weight, the savy buyer (aided with a hygrometer no doubt) knew to buy on dry days as the wool was lighter and thus a better value. Today, instrument collectors appreciate the fine workmanship of these early devices while anyone can place an antique hygrometer in their home or display case for humidity sensitive items. Be sure to check out our great selection of modern hygrometers as well.
