1656147028Code 7334 Bearing CompassHand-held magnetic bearing compass, signed Kelvin & Hughes Ltd Gt Britain N. 5328/B, early 1900s. Support base made of turned brass. Height 23 cm - 9 inches, compass diameter 10.5 cm - 4.13 inches. Very good condition.

Kelvin & Hughes company active since 1850 and specialized in the production of nautical instruments.

It is a small antique brass compass with a wooden handle that is typically used for pleasure sailing. It is equipped with a sight system with optical prism to enlarge the degrees placed on the compass card with eight graduated winds so as to make it possible to measure the angle between the line of sight and the north indicated by the magnetic needle. The compass consists of a cylindrical brass container, called mortar, on whose bottom it is fixed a stem of hard metal, called sensitive element, on which the appropriately fixed compass card is placed, so that the zero coincides with the magnetic polarity. To reduce friction to a minimum, the mortar was filled with liquid with a low freezing point, which also had the purpose of rapidly damping any oscillations of the compass and closed at the top by a sturdy protective glass and complete with a wooden handle.
