VERY RARE
AND VERY UNUSUAL
VINTAGE STANLEY SURVEYOR'S COMPASS



GENUINE 1950s STANLEY SURVEYING COMPASS AND ORIGINAL VELVET LINED LEATHER CASE WITH SHOULDER STRAP

VERY UNUSUAL

THE COMPASS IS BASED ON A 116mm SQUARE BRASS BASE WITH TWO BUBBLE LEVELS AND A SCREW DOWN TRANSIT LOCK

THE SILVERED DIAL IS SIGNED STANLEY LONDON - MADE IN ENGLAND

THE BAR NEEDLE ON A JEWELLED CAP HAS A BALANCE WEIGHT TO ADJUST FOR MAGNETIC DIP

THE RAISED SILVERED CHAPTER RING IS CALIBRATED TO 360° IN AN ANTICLOCKWISE DIRECTION SO THAT STANDING AT THE SOUTH MARKER OF THE COMPASS, AS YOU TURN THE COMPASS YOU READ THE DIRECTION THE N MARKER ON THE DIAL IS POINTING TO - THE BEARING FOR THE DIRECTION YOU ARE FACING

THE COMPASS IS IN ALMOST MINT CONDITION

THE CASE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, BUT THE LEATHER ON THE SHOULDER STRAP IS A BIT DUSTY AND WILL NEED SOME LEATHER CREAM TO BRING IT BACK TO VERY GOOD CONDITION

A HIGHLY UNUSUAL COMPASS BY STANLEY WHEN IT WAS STILL AN ENGLISH COMPANY - THIS WOULD ALSO MAKE A HANDSOME DESK ORNAMENT OR PAPERWEIGHT

THE PRICE INCLUDES POSTAGE FOR A PACKED WEIGHT OF APPROXIMATELY 1.6 kg / 3.5 lbs

IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION
