Early Georgian hand drawn coloured dial mahogany pocket compass
A rare mahogany cased pocket compass with a very decorative hand drawn coloured dial. It measures 65mm x 62mm x 22mm deep and in remarkably good condition for a piece which is well over 200 years old. In good working order, the retaining ring has a small piece of brass inserted so may be a later replacement. Interestingly, the lid has a previous owners name along with some other illegible text written inside. Please study the photos as they are part of the description, and I will be happy to answer any questions if I can.
