In original leather carry cases; brass, black lacquer; working.
This set of US-made, Dietzgen surveying tools would have been at home in the pocket of any serious surveyor, contractor, or forestry servicemen when they made nearly a century ago- the topographic abney/inclinometer level has working vernier and spirit level, and measures rise and slope grades by sight; and the lensatic hand level scope quickly and simply allowed a surveyor to sight the horizon by way of a clever half mirror and spirit bubble. Each appointed to its leather field case and sporting 19th century black lacquer and brass, these handsome, vintage scientific/outdoorsman instruments would be at home in any collection, or back in the field, for another 100 years of service.
