Good example of a Victorian technical drawing set contained within its original fitted wooden box. The box is superb quality with a brass inlaid escutcheon, matching cartouche engraved H. Forrester 1841 and a fitted velvet line interior. There are 8 individual brass instruments and accessories fitted inside the case, one with a. Bone (cow / bovine) handle.The top layer lifts out to reveal more storage space below. Has two metal rulers in it.
The whole set is in excellent condition and displays very nicely. It has obviously been well looked after and all the instruments are in good condition. There is some minor wear and light tarnishing on some of the metal parts but nothing detrimental.The wooden box is in good condition with just some light scuffs and surface scratches however we do not have a key.
