Draughtsman’s Drawing Instruments in ivory, brass and wood (c1895).
Graham Smith Antiques have this impressive, highly collectable, late 19th century Victorian set of draughtsman's drawing instruments in a mahogany case (10.5cm (4.1 inches) x 76.3cm (30 inches) x 23cm (9.1 inches). The set consists of one ivory and four wooden rulers, shaped drawing templates and cases of dividers and compasses. The instruments come in a mahogany box with two sliding lift out trays. It has a lockable lid and brass handle.
The box of instruments belonged to P.B.Fisher and many of the items have his name and initials on them along with dates from around the 1900's. If any of our customers know who P B Fisher was we would be very interested to hear from you for this blog.
As a rare addition, we have a large collection of technical documents and books to accompany this impressive item that the buyer can also have, if they wish. This set will make either a beautiful and interesting addition to your collection or as an inspired display item of interest and curiosity to your home.
