Captain Fitzroy's Storm Predictor Bottle by Nauticalia is a fun weather observation ornement helping you to work out if you can expect fair, rainy or cloudy weather as well as thunderstorms and snow. Developed and refined by Captain Robert Fitzroy aboard the HMS Beagle during the Darwin Expeditions of 1831-36, this bottle allowed him to make a number of fairly accurate weather predictions, and you can do the same!
To this day, no one is quite sure whether the storm bottle works by using atmospheric pressure, temperature, electrical disturbances or some other magical alchemy. It stands on a traditional wooden base and comes with Fitzroy's observations. Will you agree with them or find new interpretations? The mystery's been going on for nearly 180 years.
