FINE QUALITY ANTIQUE ELLIOTT BROS. BAGSHAWS PATENT DIVIDERS cased
Up for sale is a fine quality set of antique Elliott Brothers Bagshaw's Patent adjustable dividers. I have no idea what these were designed to do as I have been unable to find any references to them on the internet so I would be grateful if anybody with information as to their use could email me. I am assuming that they were used in making accurate drawings by an architect or engineer. They are made of brass and steel and are stamped: BAGSHAW'S PATENT ELLIOTT BROS. LONDON No.133. The scale on the side is numbered thus: 0 16 32 48 64 80 96 112 128 144 160. The circular dial (which rotates) is numbered the same but continues 176 192. The velvet lined leather box is marked in gilt ELLIOTT BROS. LONDON. The dividers (if that is what they are) are in good condition except for the steel tip from one of the legs being deficient (see photo) - approximately 2 mm is missing. The leather case has some minor wear to the extremities. The dividers measure 15.5 cm (6 1/8 inches) in height.
