Code BA130729454: Victorian Hunter Compass with Singers Patent Mother-of-Pearl Dial, c. 1880

This a nice Victorian compass made around 1880. It comes in a brass case in excellent condition without dings or dents. It has a strong hinge and the lid springs open as it should when the push button is pressed. Inside the lid it is stamped with a serial number: B 10. The Singer's Patent dial is Mother-of-Pearl and is the most beautiful I've ever seen for it is very rich in colours when it is exposed to light. The dial is in excellent condition. It has a jewelled brass cap and points North without any problem. The transit lock is activated when the lid is closed to protect the pivot from wear when the compass is not used. The compass measures around 46mm in diameter excluding the pendant and ring. Would make a great gift.
