Antique Pocket Compass

A nice example of an English 19th Century dry card pocket compass in it's original wooden case. The compass has a traditional black and white face with blue compass needle and a button for steadying it. The compass is covered in glass with a nice quality brass rim. 

The hinged wooden case is in nice condition with a metal closing latch. 

It appears to be in working order but is really being sold as a decorative / collectors item rather than an accurate scientific item. 

Approximate Measurements :

Diameter of Compass Face : 2 1/2" (6cm)

Box : 3" (8cm) square x 3/4" (2cm) high

The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions at all please ask.
