Specialising in the sale and repair of antique mercury barometers, Aaron Tomlinson Barometers came about following on from a history of restoring mainly Georgian and Regency period antique furniture and refining this down to the fine barometers that can be viewed in the showroom section of the website.
As the second generation of an antiques based family, having grown up surrounded by all things period, but especially clocks, going to auctions, fairs and visiting dealers from childhood. I came into barometers through the restoration of antique furniture, being asked to restore a barometer every now and then and realising that it was an area of the trade that I wanted to hone in on and make my specialist subject.
Working from my Derby based workshop I buy, restore and sell good examples of barometers from across the Georgian to earlier part of the Victorian eras. I also have stock which includes any clocks, furniture and around 50% of my barometers, on display in the market town of Ashbourne on the edge of the Peak District national park. I restore barometers for members of the public and invite them to bring repairs to my home workshop or to Ashbourne and see some examples of the barometers on display.
