    About this item

    This is a top quality piece with English silver hallmarks for London 1891 and makers marks for B & S.

    This looks like a large silver half hunter pocket watch but it is not.

    The piece is a pocket barometer and a compass set into the front cover.

    Both functions are working.

    The beautiful English silver case has a hinged front cover which pops open to 90 degrees. Set into the cover is the compass function, which has a silvered chapter ring retained by a silver bezel and glass on the front and back.

    Inside is the silvered barometer dial which is signed “Clark, 20 Old Bond St, London” and is in 95% mint condition

    The back of the case is decorated with an exquisitely engraved bird

    The rest of the case has a smooth plain finish and is in 90% mint condition – there is one soft bruise on the front cover.

    There is a mineral glass over the barometer dial

    The case measures 57mm wide x 20mm deep
