Extremely quaint example about 3 3/4" width. The case made of two hinged blocks of wood made noticeably out of square with handmade brass hinges, hook and eye fasteners and inset brass securing plates. 3" circular compass inset with printed and hand colored paper face, commercial arrow form needle (the tail actually fretted to simulate feathers) and inset circular glass base secured with putty. Fine uniform aging and character throughout. The glass face cracked but simply replaced if desired. The dory compass was stored until needed, then secured to the boat by slipping over a pair of brass posts corresponding to the channels at the front and back. Enormous quaint character and early in the whaling period.
