    antique barker's verners compass j h steward ltd london

    ITEM: AN ORIGINAL VERNERS COMPASS BY BARKERS (SIGNED) c.1910, In 1841 Francis established the company of F. Barker & Son at 12 Clerkenwell Road.Francis Barker was a prolific compass maker. He experimented constantly and produced a truly massive range of different compass styles and variations over the years. His business was primarily wholesale and the vast majority of his items were sold unsigned to shops and 'makers' who then applied their own signatures and sold the items as their own, as still happens today. A large part of the range of compasses sold by companies such as Negretti & Zambra, John Lizars, C.W. Dixey and many, many others were actually made by F. Barker & Son and signed by the respective retailer prior to sale. In fairness, Francis also signed many items that he sold but which he did not manufacture, such as telescopes, binoculars, levels etc.
