    its a Welby Wall Barometer from the early 1930's from Germany. Barometers predict weather by looking at changes in the pressure in air. Falling pressure means storms rising pressure means clearing.

    As far as categories on ebay. I suggest Collectibles > Science and Medicine (1930 till Now)

    Value is a crap-shoot It is a nice piece and should go around a hundred in my guess but I suggest looking for other Barometers in that category (search the completed listings under advanced)

    Hope this helps.
