Anemometer, German type No.113924. Early airspeeed indicator. Metal gauge with a round dial under a glass face.

Fitted over the collar is a copper fixture with four 25 mm diameter copper cups acting as wind receivers. The cups are secured on a central axis which appears to activate the hands on dial of the anemometer. The dial reads 0-24 with numbers running 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24. There are interval markings between the numbers. These are at .5 intervals. The manufacturer's name on the white face dial is - Wilhelm Morell No.13924.
