VERY EARLY 5 1/2" STEEL AND BRASS DOUBLE CALIPER - CA. 1790?
Found with the Gourdin a Paris dated 1788 level and two brass rulers (which are also listed on this site). My best guess is that these four items have been together since then. This set of calipers is made with heavy tapered steel and has two finely knurled brass discs at the pivot point. Early and excellent.
