Title RN calipers by I N D Smallwood, Birmingham, England
Nationality British
Period c 1914
Sold

These calipers, for measuring the circumference of wire and rope, are made of boxwood and brass. The maker's name (as above) is stamped into the piece along with the calibration and there is a small handpunched broad arrow at the base, indicating a Royal Navy issue item.

They would appear to have a button polish finish, which is partially abraded through wear over the years. However, all the calibration is clearly legible and the movement is stiff but in working order.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
