Small solid brass compasses are very hard to find. These are from India and China and made to a high standard. The brass stock on both is a relatively heavy gauge and well polished.
The Pocket Marching Compass is only 1-3/4" in diameter (and 1/2" thick). It's great to carry with you when on a walk. The Victorian Desk Compass (also 1/2" thick) is 3" in diameter and has a needle locking lever to safeguard the large needle if handled a bit roughly. Both are very good looking and nake great gifts. We like them a lot.
Made in India.
