British Royal Navy octant with original wood box, ca. 1790-1860. Case and octant, 1966 grams; case 13" x 12" x 3-3/4", octant 12" x 10" x 3". Intact brass and ebony octant with ivory inlays, prominently marked "McBride and Kerr" in original condition with original wood case showing some cracking and repairs along with handwritten math notes on inside (can't you just picture a sailor scrawling some measurements to chart his course?). A wonderful nautical memento in good working condition.
