Description
This is a lovely old helmet-style binnacle fitted with a gimbaled compass dating from the early 20th Century. It is housed in brass with a glass front and a hinged side door revealing the original oil burner within. It sits on a turned wooden base. The compass is mounted on a metal mount which allows it to swivel and turn, designed to do so to compensate for the movement on a boat. The rim of the compass is stamped for the maker "Kelvin & Hughes Ltd" and the front of the binnacle has a stamp for "Joh Gubransen Oslo". The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.

declaration
In a Nutshell Antiques & Interiors Ltd has clarified that the Antique Brass Binnacle Compass with Oil Burner (LA492765) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1920
condition
The compass is in good condition for its age and has been cleaned and lightly polished and displays beautifully. It has picked up various minor marks, scuffs and signs of use and some small dinks but nothing detrimental. The brass has tarnished over time and the glass has a few surface marks but nothing major. The compass itself is in working order and is, as far as I can tell, fairly accurate.
