The Jeffersonian Rain Gauge is a practical instrument that can also serve as art or décor in your favorite outdoor space. The intriguing brass Jeffersonian Rain Gauge is a statement maker.

Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s affinity for invention, this unique device uses a float and lever design to measure up to 5" of rain (or sprinkler water) in 1/5" increments. As rain fills the vial of the Jeffersonian Rain Gauge, the red ball rises, consequently causing the steel arm to climb up the 5 inch scale. This gauge will turn into the wind to ensure the most accurate measurement or may be tightened down to fix its location.

The brass Jeffersonian Rain Gauge includes a pressure treated wooden stake for ground installation and a hanger bolt for mounting on a deck or other desired location.

The Jeffersonian Rain Gauge is crafted from solid brass, glass and stainless steel (glass vial not to be left out in freezing temperatures). Quality construction with a lifetime guarantee! 

  • Dimensions: 12 1⁄ 2" wide by 42" tall

$112.00 for a rain gauge? Must be a misprint of the price..

Submitted by

It is not a misprint. We have rain gauges under $30 too, but this is a special one. It's made differently.There's a great guarantee and it's not sold everywhere. It's been a popular product for us and we've never taken a return on it. Remember, if you buy something from us and it does not meet your expectations we'll gladly refund your money.
