Detail view showing print inside.
This is an antique early 20th c. hand-held surveying level. I incised a grid pattern on the surface not unlike what surveyor's used to plot surveys. There is an antique print inside behind the level box that shows the surveyor at work. My grandfather used one of these in his work setting cable for Bell Telephone in Oklahoma during the Depression.
