The device, used to check bubble levels, consists of a brass frame in which the level to be checked is inserted. By means of a screw and a pair of sliding indexes, one can either determine the exact position of the air bubble contained in the liquid, or change it. The instrument rests on a brass base engraved with a goniometer and fitted with leveling screws. Provenance: Lorraine collections.
