I can't read the maker's identifier. Looks like BA[something] & Co. Made in France. Can you show some more detail. Looks like a pretty good quality piece. Is it at all accurate?

B. Altman & Co was a department store that was founded in 1865 and lasted until 1990. While more information about your compass can be found, I don't have the means to narrow it down any further. This might be a good place to start.

Henry, Johnson and Lord were one of the biggest proprietors of medicines in VT. I've not seen that bottle before. Am I right though that the lip is chipped? I might have some interest nonetheless. My Mom collects VT meds. Jim G
