Code BA130707251: Antique F. Barker & Son Brass Compass, c. 1880

This is a nice and rare late 19th century British compass from Francis Barker & Son, London. It was made approximately in 1880. The compass comes in a solid brass case in excellent condition without dings or dents. The dial has a nice design and is in excellent condition. It is clearly signed F. BARKER & SON, MAKERS LONDON. The compass is fully working and finds North without any problem. The transit lock is also functional when the lid is closed. The compass measures 47 mm in diameter. Very nice and quality compass.
