A lovely example of a mid-Victorian brass box compass. This is a very rare antique pocket compass, with the highly unusual and distinctive 'Warranted London Made' inscription on the beautifully hand-drawn compass card. The card has a jewelled pivot. The brass case is in good condition and the lid fits very well. The compass is in full working order and finds North well. It has a working transit lock operated by a sliding button on the side of the case.
In very good, original condition and full working order, with some wear and a few marks to the finish of the brass case.
