Here you have a RARE Kelvin White Danforth Constellation Compass. It was originally designed in 1947 by Wilfrid G. White of the Kelvin White Co. The Constellation Series compasses were available in 5", 6", 7" and 8" sizes with the Kelvin-White name on them. The Kelvin-White company became the Wilfrid O.

And the Constellations were made under that name until 1961 when Danforth bought the company and used the name Danforth-White on the compasses, finally dropping the White name in the late 1960's to become Danforth compasses. Danforth added a 4 constellation to the line. In the 1980's Rule industries bought Danforth and continued using the Danforth name. Rule added a 4-1/2 Constellation to the line. Constellations are still manufactured today. To determine which size Constellation you have, measure the diameter of the clear dome. The 7" measures 7+" in diameter. I believe this is the 7 version. The engraved Pat # 2428346 was approved in 1947. This compass glass is super clean and has no air in the dome. The size is impressive for the right project or a wonderful addition to your boat.
