Conant Collections 2nd Generation Jeffersonian Rain Gauge (Living Finish Brass)--7" Scale

Conant has updated its most popular rain gauge with the highest quality materials and construction possible, so you can be sure this practical, yet decorative instrument will withstand the test of time for many years to come.

The 2nd Gen Jeffersonian Rain Gauge features everything customers have loved along with a solid steel deck mount and foundation rod, a stainless steel float that will never chip or leak, and a re-engineered gauge pointer for more precise measurements.

This newly improved version of the Jeffersonian Rain Gauge is inspired by Thomas Jefferson's affinity for invention. Using a float and lever design, this unique device measures up to 7" of rain in 2/10" increments, with a glass vial and a lever with a red ball. As rain fills the vial, the red ball rises, consequently causing the steel arm to climb up the scale.

The stylish, artistic meteorology device is crafted from solid brass, glass, aluminum, and stainless steel.  This charming, yet functional rain gauge surely captures the essence of a quaint old-fashioned garden—stylishly.

Like other weather devices in the Conant Jeffersonian collection, this beloved rain gauge is made of brass and has a traditional aesthetic that will age gracefully over time to a mellow copper, then eventually to its classic patina green within months of exposure to the elements.

It's also easy to install and can be mounted on a fence post, stake in the ground, or anywhere else in the garden with ease.

Please remember to AVOID FREEZING!!!  Be sure to bring your rain gauge indoors before air temperatures reach the freezing point. This will keep it safely free of ice, which could expand and break the glass vial.
