Description

A very rare example of a ink pair of dividers made in full brass.

The instrument is not signed but bears an hallmark in shape of heart, certainly German from the 17th century.

This kind of true pair of dividers but with a fixed ink point seems quite rare.

The instrument is perfectly preserved and measures 10,4 cm lenght.
