ANTIQUE ENGLISH
SHALLOW CASE POCKET COMPASS
MANUFACTURED BY F BARKER & SON
c. 1900

Antique F. Barker & Son (unsigned) shallow case pocket compass, having a closed thickness of just 1cm

The compass is in perfect working condition, and still has over 95% of its original gunmetal finish. The lid clicks firmly closed, and springs open when you press the button

The English bar needle has a triangular pointer for north instead of the usual cross-bar, and the chapter ring is unusually and attractively set at 45°

The main cardinal points are set in red underneath the top glass
