I am selling this antique French drawing tool set that was created by the Compas Superieurs BREVETÉS S.G.D.G Company in Paris, France at the end of the 19th century.
The box looks good for it's age but the lock is a bit rusty and is stuck at the moment. The tools in this set are of the highest quality for the nineteenth century. They are made of brass. These tools were used for precision drawings. The set came with many interchangeable parts. It appears that the set is complete and original.
The hardwood box is veneered and in good used condition. The inside is covered with purple velvet. The drawer with the parts can be removed. Underneath is a storage compartment with two period rulers, one in wood and one in metal (Alfred Schutte) and two degree rules of which one is handwritten.
This auction will be started without a reserve price, please examine the photos before bidding.
