If the folks over at Boing Boing measured rainfall between their prolific blog posts, I'd bet they would go for something like this steampunk-looking brass, mechanical rain gauge!

With its antique look, it recalls the genius of Thomas Jefferson, known for his mathematically based inventions combining art and purpose.

The rain gauge includes a rain collection vial with floating ball, necessary screws and hooks, solid brass body for measuring, a wooden stake with brass mounting pole and a finial on top to complete the look.

Standing 42 inches tall, the solid brass and glass Jeffersonian employs a float-and lever mechanism to move a dial across an arched gauge, which features cutout numerals and notches at precise intervals along both sides.

As rain collects in the glass vial, the float rises and moves the lever, which is attached to a stylish pointer that moves up and down the gauge. You will be able to know exactly how much rain your garden is getting with this rain gauge.
