A Rare Set of 10 Antique Hydrometers by Mon. Salleron Dujardin
A hydrometer is a device for measuring the relative levels of different substances in a liquid - in this case, it was used to measure the strength of alcohol in spirits. A vintage breathalyser!
This rare set comes in its original box. A great display piece for a high-quality wine merchant's window.
Dujardin-Salleron has been manufacturing measuring devices and instruments since 1855 - and are still in operation today.
