Dividers in the shape of a dagger made of blued steel with gold inlays. A very precious object, it was part of a set of instruments for military or cartographic use. Carries the inscription "Volentieri" [willingly] in gold, whose significance is unclear. When the dividers are open, they display the maker's initials, "B.V." (Benvenuto della Volpaia), also inlaid in gold. Provenance: Medici collections.
