Bergen Nautik (Norway) compass gimbaled, in a very old brass/copper compass house.
The compass is still in very good condition without air bubbles.
The number is on the compass edge: 18739.
In the glass of the compass is a date: 21-3-68. Also the following numbers B2849 and B2819. Its meaning is not known to me.
This compass is later placed in the old house and still works well without air bubbles.
The house is in used condition but everything still works fine. There is an oil lamp in it made of porcelain with the brand of Sherwood Limited.
On the compass house is a brass plate with the following data:
Bergen Nautik, Telegramadresse: Nautik Norge
The compass house is lacquered and never needs to be cleaned.
The glass is cracked but is still well attached.
The house stands on a wooden frame that is very nicely finished.
The air outlet above the oil lamp can be screwed off and the door goes up with a slide.
As far as I can see everything is original to the house.
Pictures are a part of the description.

Very bad packaging. The compass was not dismounted sot it has deformed and loosened the support that should now be restoredPlease note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hi Francois Wallon, sorry to hear that the compass has not received you well. I allways be very carefully in packing compasses. I never had any complains about that. I would like to see what the problem is so I can learn from it the next time. Could it be that the transport company did not handle it well ?
Can you send me pictures of the box and the compass.
