1617799802Code 6925 Antique sextantBrass sextant signed John Lilley & Son Ltd London & North Shields, made in 1913 circa, instrument housed in its original mahogany box with brass handles, hinges and locking hooks. Brass frame with engraved silver goniometric scale embedded in the arch, with scale from 0 to + 150, adjustable vernier with reading vernier, wooden handle, four colored glasses for the fixed mirror and three for the mobile one. The instrument is accompanied by 3 inspection certificates in 1930, 1952 and 1955. Excellent condition. Box size 27x26.7 h 14 cm - 10.6x10.5 h 5.5 inches.

In 1910 the firm of John Lilley and Son (which had been established in London in 1812), found themselves in financial difficulties and were saved with the help of John Wilson Gillie, who established, on the 8th of August 1911, a new firm of John Lilley and Son Limited. John Lilley and Son had been the sole London agents for Sir William Thomson, a very enviable position during this period, when the Thomson compass led the field. Unfortunately, Mr. Lilley had quarrelled with the Glasgow company, who withdrew the agency and established their own branch in London (later to become Kelvin White and Hutton). On November 7th 1913, the firm of John Lilley and Son Limited of London amalgamated with Wilson and Gillie of North Shields, and after this date instruments manufactured by the two companies bore the name John Lilley and Son Limited of London and North Shields.
