Brass Naval Divider - Gifts

This product is temporarily unavailable.

A much sought-after instrument in the antique market is the 1740 vintage caliper (British Patent #490) that was used in the Royal Navy for two centuries. (An original is shown to the right.) Now made by an instrument maker in India, it comes in a presentation box with a classic fouled-anchor brass inlay in the lid.

The adjustable friction joint makes it ideal for single-handed adjustment and use. Holding it as shown, you can use it one-handed, putting pressure on the arches to open it or pressure on the legs to close it, keeping the other hand "free for the ship".

It makes a great gift for latter-day admirals. Just under 8" overall.
