POCKET COMPASS WITH LEATHER CASE – DOLLOND COPPER DIAL – 55mm
Made from solid brass with an antique copper finish, our Dollond London compass has a pocket sized 55mm diameter body. It is fully functional with top-grade magnets, jewelled needle and an easy-to-read compass rose. So it can be securely fasten when in use, there’s a solid ring attached to the outer case in the style of a pocket watch. When not in use, it can be stored inside its protective leather carry case.
A family business, Dollond London, established in 1750, was one of the earliest optical and mathematical instrument specialists in the United Kingdom. When, in 1761 they were appointed opticians to the king, the Dollond reputation for superior quality was forged. In 1819 the business was passed on to nephew George, remembered by history for inventing a variety of new precision instruments for measurement, astronomy and navigation.
On the rear of the compass case is engraved a poem by Jean Barlow Hudson. This poem is found at the base of a public sculpture in Milwaukee USA, Compass, by artist Jon Barlow Hudson, her son.
Inner time is limitless
from past lives
can not longer remember,
and around me a continuum
moves and swirls,
and moves majestically
my inner sight or imagination.
This time is immense,
a celestial sphere
yet it does not forget me,
does not neglect me.
It embraces me.
I am a part of its verity.
It is part of mine.
My life flows. It flows.
