Sectioned (longitudinal) insulated copper rain gauge by C. F. Casella & Co., London, England, 1908. Consists of three parts: funnel, case and inner bucket.
Of the many sizes of rain gauge available during the latter part of the 19th century, the most convenient were the five inch and eight inch diameter gauges. The collecting funnel sat at the top of a cylinder set firmly in the ground, and a collecting jar and measuring cylinder completed the kit. This example, made by C F Casella, has been sectioned for exhibition purposes.
