The storm glass was popularised by Admiral Robert Fitzroy after his historic voyage on the HMS Beagle, when the British Crown distributed these to the populace after a particularly violent storm season. Modern meteorology is far more accurate, but these elegant glasses still hold aesthetic appeal. This storm glass is the same size and shape as our 28 cm Galileoâ€(TM)s thermometers, and they make an attractive pair on a windowsill.
