A small 1.75 inch (45 mm) pocket compass finished in gilt brass with a porcelein dial with a centre jewelled compass. The dial is signed,'Wm Harris & Co. The signature can be dated to 1820 as William Harris was then, recorded, and advertised his wares additionally at'Bey dem Rathhause no. The needle can be locked into place, and made free, by moving the small lever left / right. Tiny chip to the enamel face at South point.
Very nice condition noting just minor wear to the gilt on the compass neck.
