 This is an excellent example of a smaller than average brass  compass made in Germany in the late 1700s through mid-1800s designed for travelers and settlers and introduced in US by outfitters and early explorers. This specific item has the makers initials ( F. N.) on the paper card  and the magnetic declination arrow pointed to 23 degrees West. Each device  is unique in its own way due to the attractive printed paper dial and custom hand painted compass rose. Dimensions: diameter 40 mm and height 12 mm.
