Code BA16022401: Antique Negretti and Zambra Brass Compass, c. 1880

This is a nice and rare late 19th century British compass made by Negretti & Zambra. It was made approximately in 1880. It has a gilt brass case in excellent condition without dings or dents. The dial is clean and clearly signed by makers name: NEGRETTI & ZAMBRA, LONDON. The compass is fully working and finds North without any problem. It has a transit lock that comes into play when the lid is closed. It measures 32 mm in diameter. Very nice and quality compass.
