This is a great example of an early to mid 1900's dory compass. Manufactured by Wilcox Crittenden originally of Middletown Connecticut these compasses were the standard in small "Dory" compasses. Formed in 1869 the Wilcox Crittenden company enjoyed a reputation for high quality marine products. Their fittings and compasses were found on almost every ship launched on the East Coast for over 100 years.

This 3" dial Compass was restored to its original working condition. It is mounted in its original mahogany box.
