Description

The brass protractor has a normal size (133×83 mm) but the engraving of the numbers of 180° double scale is quite nice and typical from the early 18th century German.

Even if the condition is not perfect, a quite rare German signature.

Websterdatabase references only one instrument signed by “H. Friese in Berlin”.
