Description

Antique sterling silver compass in a watch style case, with full English hallmarks.

This compass dates to 1916 and was made by Francis Barker and Son, of Clapton, London. The company was established in 1848 to manufacture precision instruments such as portable compasses, then in the later 19th century one of his sons, Charles, added gold and silver jewellery to the companies portfolio.

This silver compass could hang from a watch chain and be carried in a pocket, or placed inside a cased leather strap and worn on the wrist in the same way as a watch.


Measurements

Case Diameter : 30 mm

Internal Compass : 21 mm

Declaration

Agatha Hamster Antiques has clarified that the silver compass, fully hallmarked for Francis Barker & Son (LA214534) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1916.

Condition

The case is in excellent condition, with no dents and only surface age wear as expected. The compass doesn't work and would need servicing or even replacing, as the compass housing lifts out of the silver case. The crystal glass is 'frosted' from wear.
