W. H. Harling Ivory rule / Sector for Architects / NavigationW. H. Harling 6" Ivory Rule / Protractor for Architects / Navigation  This English made Ivory Rule is configured similar to a Architects Rule with numerous scales and a protractor on the perimeter.  I have read the scales are navigation related.  Rules like this are usually found in boxed drafting sets, or traveling Shagreen cases associated with navigation or architects.   It is marked with the maker name and location on one face.  The overall condition is very nice.
