Antique nautical dry compass with a housing made of brass and a glass disc. The lid is removable with a click closure, there is a lever on the side that you depress and simultaneously turn the lid, and then the lid of the compass opens. With a lamp on the side (carbide?).
Inscribed with ‘No.833’ and 919/ 1969 is on the compass disc, probably the name and year it was built.
A sticker has been placed under the lid of the lamp, I could only decipher the name ‘Artur Kuchar’....?
And underneath that ‘72-600 ?????’, probably the company that did the maintenance work, or the manufacturer/seller.
Approx. 20 cm high case (with lamp 25)
Approx. 18 cm diameter case
Approx. 12 cm diameter of the compass itself
