Not sure how complete this is. The circular body of the compass can tilt towards the sights and there is a provision for locking it but I can't move the brass slide to lock it. Two intact bubble levels. Ornate silvered dial. The needle can be locked.

This a British compass made by Moses Ash - here is an excerpt from the 14th (fourteenth) Londoniad I believe 1870s that refers to him:

"MOSES ASH, Optician, Mathematical and Philosophical Instrument Manu- facturer. Magnetic, Galvanic, and Electrical Apparatus, Miners' Dials, Theodolites, Circumferentors, &c.; Magnets of every description ; Smee's, Daniell's, Bunsen's Carbon, and Grove's Batteries. All other kinds made to order. The Trade supplied with iSill: and Cotton-covered Wire. 4, Bull Street, Birmingham. Kepairs strictly attended to. Shipping Orders promptly ey ^utod. That which came o'er me like to a mental flash, Were the peculiar works of Mr. Moses Ash ; They've thro' the whole of Europe met with high approval, Long before, and since, his eventful removal. THE LONDONIAD."

The total length of this piece is approx. 11 1/8 inches. The circular dial including the brass rim is approx. 5 1/4 inches across. The weight is 4 pounds 12.3 ounces. I don't know how well (or if) it works. Obviously has spotting, dirt, scuffs, scratches. The glass is intact. The sights fold.
