A Francis Barker nickel-plated brass, pocket watch cased compass, dating from around 1880-1900. Although there are no maker's marks, this particular design was listed as the 'Watchform' compass in Barker catalogues, no doubt owing to its characteristic pocket watch type of case. With a nickel plated brass case, a flat blued needle and paper compass card. The bevelled, slightly domed glass is in good condition. There is some minor wear to the nickel plating of the case and loop. The compass is in good working order, and finds North well.
