A delicate and unusually small mid-Victorian leather cased pocket compass. This is a quite a rare antique compass, as this type of compass is not often seen in this compact size (27mm diameter). With a distinctive 19th century English blued needle and detailed compass card. The needle has gilt North and South markers and a brass pivot. In its original, blue velvet lined, morocco leather case. The case is in good condition, with the leather covering missing from the base. The rest of the leather covering is complete and in good condition. The original glass is in very good condition. The compass is in full working order and finds North well.
In very good, original condition and full working order, with the leather covering missing from the base of the case.
