The Boreal Arrow 

Code BA15121401: Antique James Parkes & Son Pocket Compass c. 1850

This is a nice and rare compass made by JAMES PARKES & Son c. 1850. It comes in a round brass case with a lid. The dial is clearly marked with the maker's logo: LEFT EYE WITH EYEBROW in the middle of the words TRADE MARK. The compass has a flat needle with a brass cap, marked N at North. It is in full working order and finds North without any problem. Very nice and rare compass with 46mm in diameter.
