W. & J. Cary Table Compass

0.00

This form of compass is normally seen atop the stretchers of Cary globes. However it does appear to have never been attached to a globe & so it must have been meant for a more portable usage.  The magnetized hand still functions as designed, and is blued with very small, subtle, N and S letters in gilt. 

Circa 1800

Diameter - 7 1/4 inches
