Antique 14k Gold Hand Made Geo. Peters Drafting Or Map Making Compass
Antique 14k Gold Hand Made Geo. Peters Drafting Or Map Making Compass, Early Repousse
This is an antique drafting or map making compass in solid 14K gold made and signed by Geo. Peters. The only Geo. Peters goldsmith reference available is found on the Kent Directory of 1794 which encompasses all businesses and goldsmiths in London, Westminster, and Southwart. This compass has incredible precision and hand crafting. The workmanship is far superior to anything made today. The top has hand made gold rivets and screw which are integrally set into the gold so the compass opens and closes with ease yet remains extremely strong and secure. It is VERY, VERY WELL-MADE. It is also DOUBLE SIDED with the fancy, repoussed, hand carved work on BOTH SIDES. Very, Very pretty....Size is 4" long. The top is 3/8" wide across the circle by 1/4" deep. Weight is 26.6 grams. Although the goldsmith for this compass in listed in the London registers as Peters Geo., Esq., Mercht., 32, Old Bethlem, late 1700s, the hand cut repousse work leads me to believe that this particular compass was probably made in the early to mid 1800s. I also believe this goldsmith likely had a more well-seasoned hand later in life. In any event, it is a fantastic item for anyone who collects very rare, special, antique gold items. Condition is superb! No dents or dings. No monogram or inscription. No deep scratches. Put in a draw and properly stored away for many, many years. This is a SUPER RARE and INCREDIBLY WELL- MADE compass for your antique gold collection!!!!!!!! Please feel free to email with any questions. Shipping includes boxed packaging, insurance, insurance, and delivery confirmation. Item is shipped promptly once the payment arrives. Combined shipping is always available.
