Kriegsmarine Compass by Askania Werke A.G. Berlin
Askania were established in 1938 and manufactured for both the German navy and Luftwaffe. An excellent example, either from a small craft or perhaps as an auxiliary back up compass in case the main unit failed. Nicely marked on the bezel with a Kriegsmarine property mark and numbered M3167. The compass card and oil are very clear with just a small air bubble visible under the glass. The compass bowl appears to be made from Bakelite and incorporates brass lugs for gimble mounting. Diameter 5.5"(14 cm).
