The Boreal Arrow 

Code BA21020701: English hunter Compass by B & S, c. 1920

This is a nice English compass in a hunter case made around 1920 by B & S. The case is made of brass in excellent condition without dings or dents. It has a strong hinge. The dial has a nice design and is in excellent condition. It is covered with a beveled glass also in excellent condition without any chips or scratches. When the lid is closed the transit lock lifts the needle to prevent wear to the pivot. When the lid is opened the needle is released and finds North easily and precisely. Excellent overall condition. It measures around 45mm in diameter excluding the pendant and ring.
