Price $

350

We believe this to be a rare Francis Barker circa 1850 compass per our company research.  NOTE – The needle has lost magnetism to show correct coordinates, but needle lock, glass and brass oval ring are in excellent condition.  It has the silver plaque, recessed hinges that were a Barker signature with paper de-fleur compass navigational directions.  Most Barker compasses bore the infamous top ornate crest silver plaque with new owner’s initial (This has the letter A).  Size is 2” x 2” x 1”.   Upon microscope examination, we can barely make out a faded wood stamp of LENNIE; 18 Princes St with blurry script country name.  Collectors of antique compasses will find this a highlight to their collection.
