A Compass in a satin birch case.
The compass case has a removable lid that protects the domed glass covering the dial. The floating card shows 16 points with the 4 Cardinals, 4 Half Cardinals and 8 False Points. North is represented by a Fleur de Lys with the other 15 points represented by their initials, i.e. S, SW, and SSW.
The case is well turned with the lid a good tight fit. Late 19th Century.
