The Boreal Arrow 

Code BA21060402: English Liquid Filled Pocket Compass, c. 1900

This is a liquid filled compass similar to the UNICUS model manufactured from 1890 to the early 1900 before adopting the smaller models later. The dial was typically used on the UNICUS model and has a butterfly at North. This example has an black painted metal hunter case free of dings or dents without any loss to the original colour. The dial rotates smoothly and finds North without any problem. The dial is covered with a flat glass crystal free of chips or scratches. This is a rare compass and would make a nice add to a serious collection. The compass is virtually in mint condition and measures 48mm in diameter excluding the pendant and loop.
