An impressive Georgian compass dating to around 1800 set in a hinged mahogany block measuring 4"square.
The compass has a shapely blued-steel needle and a clear copper plate engraved Galleon ship compass rose, the card divided into degrees and also showing all the points of the compass.
The needle is held by a detent which comes into play when the lid is closed. In full working order.
Excellent condition, the compass measuring 3 1/4 " in diameter and the case 5" square and 3/4" thick.
