Drawing Instrument sets


Collectable/ Vintage




I combine shipping costs on multiple purchases. You will be charged the actual postage fee it costs me to send your things. If it is possible, I will combine your purchases into a single package and charge for that. However, with heavier items being posted outside the UK, this may not be possible because Royal Mail only carries a maximum of 2 Kilos. In this case I will divide your purchases up into lots weighing 2 kilos or less. Please bear in mind that I like to package items securely so they arrive safe at the other end, therefore this will add quite a bit to the weight on delicate items.

Due to my job requiring odd hours of working and sometimes a few days away from home, it will sometimes, but not always, be a few days before I can post your item. This is reflected in the Expected Delivery Date you see when buying. If you need something urgently, it is worth contacting me to see if I can give it priority.

Feedback other than positive harms business. Please contact me before leaving feedback, if there is something not right with your purchase. I am willing to sort out any issue that is due to a mistake of mine. I aim to have only satisfied customers, as I treasure the near 100% feedback that I have. These make it viable to keep my prices down. Many thanks.

13 piece set, comprising 2 bone-handled ink pens, 3 small screw-adjustable compasses/dividers, 2 small and 2 large non-screw-adjustable compasses/dividers and various attachments for same. Interior of lid opens up to provide small paper storage compartment (a few vintage papers contained within dated early 20th century 1915 etc). A beautiful set dating from round about the turn of the 20th century.

Questions and answers about this item

Q: Hello, I noticed that there does seem to be something missing in this set: The leg extension & one of the small instruments are missing the tightened screws. Is that just me OR are they really not there? You might want... Continue reading
A: Hi, I have checked the set, there really is nothing missing. The leg extension never had a tightening screw, it just clips in. I cannot find any evidence of any missing screws from any of the other instruments, it must just... Continue reading
