The Boreal Arrow
Code BA12090211: Antique F. Barker & Son Brass Compass, c. 1875
This is a nice and rare late 19th century British compass from Francis Barker & Son, London. It was made approximately in 1875. The compass comes in a solid brass case in excellent condition with only some minor signs of use (the case may be polished and it will look like new). The compass is clearly signed by maker on the dial and inside the lid. The makers logo is TRADE MARK LONDON. The compass is fully working and finds North without any problem. The compass measures 3.8cm in diameter. Very nice and rare compass.
