A fantastic collection of map navigation instruments. We believe these a mixture of pieces as they appear to be from very different dates. 

The parallel rule is stamped UWW (Universal Wood Workers) and we believe dates from the 1930's. However the set of calipers is dated 1967 and has a military mark. The box also seems to be more recent than 1930's. Our assumption therefore is that the rule has been added to the box at some point. Beautifully made piece fantastic for the collector or for display. 


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
