Antique Technical Drawing Set
Good example of a late 19th / early 20th Century technical drawing set contained within its original fitted mahogany box. The box is superb quality with a brass escutcheon and its original working key. It has a beautiful fitted velvet lined interior with 9 individual steel instruments and accessories fitted inside the case. The top layer lifts out to reveal more storage space below which currently houses a parallel ruler and a brass protractor.
The whole set is in good condition for its age. It has obviously been well looked after and all the instruments are in good condition. There is some minor wear and light tarnishing / rust on some of the metal parts but nothing detrimental. The wooden box is in good condition with just some light scuffs and surface scratches.
Approximate Measurements (box):
Length : 8" (20cm)
Width : 4 1/2" (12cm)
Height : 1 3/4" (4.5cm)
