Cased Folding Dividers

Cased Folding Dividers

A pair of brass and steel Dividers in Case that can be converted for use as a compass. The pointed ends of the dividers can be pulled out of the main body to create 2 more instruments. To one side is a compass with ink pen and the other another compass with a retracting lead pencil fitting. The 2 smaller instruments can either be used separately or fitted back to the Dividers dependent on whether you wished to draw a pencil or ink circle. The Dividers are very well made with the hinges in steel and even a shaped section to protect the points when packed. The leather on softwood case is coffin shaped to hold the instrument tight and is lined in velvet. Early 19th Century.
