Antique James Imray Octant C. 1850:
Dark wood (ebony?) frame, brass fittings, bone/ivory inlay on scales and label. Label reads, "IMRAY MINORIES LONDON." Since Imray moved to the Minories office in 1850, and was joined by his son in 1854, this appears to have been manufactured some time 1850-1854. Good condition, arm pivots smoothly. Mirror is clouded and aged. Small crack in wood at apex, wood otherwise in very good shape. Brass is tarnished with some luster. Vernier scale missing a small piece on the right side (see picture). No case, no accessories.
