Style Overview
An original Silva Type 15 Ranger Sighting compass. The mirror allows the landscape and compass dial to be viewed simultaneously allowing a more accurate bearing. This is a vintage item. It has been thoroughly checked and found to be in good working order but may feature wear and marks in line with its age. Occasionally vintage pieces are marked with the name of the original owner or company.

About Silva
In 1933 Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid filled compass. The liquid reduced the time needed to take a bearing and protractor baseplate improved bearing accuracy. Their invention made it faster and easier to use and read the compass. With the launch of their first headlamp two years later the Silva company was born.
