A nice set of drawing instruments. All pieces housed in a rosewood with brass inlay box with purple velvet lining. Instruments are made of nickel-silver and steel, four pieces have ivory handles. This set is top quality and still very usable. Among the set is off course the main compass, and two smaller, extension bars, divider, a spring bow and even the little key for adjusting is there! Wooden protractor and ruler in the lid. Key to lock the box.
Nice complete set in very good condition. Would be a great gift for an architect!
