The Estate rain gauge offers plenty of capacity for measuring heavy rainfall and more than enough class to complement the upscale patio, courtyard or garden. Brass construction glimmers even in low light and its antiqued finish looks better and better as the years go by. A glass tube-basin magnifies bold black digits indicating up to 12 inches of rain, displaying rainfall in 1/10-inch increments. The large black numerals on the calibration scale are visible from a significant distance, and water in the tube will magnify the width of any submerged numerals by 50 percent. A top, base, and mounting bracket in antique brass complete the look. A drain valve at the base and a screen within the brass collection cup prevents debris from entering the tube for smooth maintenance. The purchase includes screws for mounting the gauge to a post, fence, or deck support. Backed by a lifetime guarantee, the gauge stands 26 inches tall.
