This Antique Drafting Set was most likely made in France in the latter part of the 1800s. It features twelve pieces and is complete. The set comes in a brown wooden box lined with Navy blue velvet and silk.
The instruments contained are of the finest quality and are completely operational. The brass has polished up nicely, and while there is some rust on the steel parts, they will still work. It contains a metal protractor and one made of celluloid.
There is an unmarked faceplate on the top of the box. There look to be some paint or typewriter correction fluid spots on the outside of the case, but otherwise it closes and is in excellent condition.
The set contains a:
• Brass and steel compass with antique pencil.
•Brass measuring tool.
• Ruling pen that fits in with the set
• Extenders and spacers
• A ruling pen with ornate carved wooden handle.
Sets like this would have been used by engineers and architects or artists. These precision antique drafting instruments are rare, and it is hard to find a set this complete.
The box measures 7.75" x 4.25" x 1"
