Gardam & Sons Theodolite - also marked J, Davis London and Derby theodolite The top level has broken glass and missing an objective, This is all brass with nickel plating in parts. I think about 1880 as it has the same lower parts and compass as an engineer's level also made by W. I can't find an example of another theodolite made by Gardam. Both the marks are early as they do not mention Ltd. The nickel plating is worn on the compass, but compliments the brass.

I think about 1880 as it has the same lower parts as a surveyors Wye level and as a compass also made by W. The nickel plating is worn on the compass and vernier, but compliments the brass to make a very handsome and elegant theodolite. A lot of effort in the detailing has been afforded to make it look aesthetically pleasing.
