Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale a Antique Ashcroft Altitude Gauge
Wonderful 1920s Altitude gauge manufactured by The Ashcroft Company of New York. Just a wonderful piece ready to display as is with lots of patina or polish up the brass.
Made of cast iron base with brass and glass facing, the brass face is removable by pulling the pins on each side of the brass frame, this is so the red hand can be set for a minimum water pressure setting.

An Altitude Gauge was often fitted down at the boiler so the homeowner or plumber could make sure the system was filled to the level of the expansion tank. With the atmospheric vent on the expansion tank, there were evaporative losses of water, so the homeowner had to periodically add more water.

Circa; 1920s
Marked; The Ashcroft Company of New York
Measures; 6” diameter across front.
Condition; Very nice condition for age, couple dings on the brass and paint lose on black frame, untested. Please see all pictures.
