3 in stock
This stylish replica pocket WWII compass from Authentic Models is made from polished brass with a glass face and comes in a lovely gift box.
The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests. Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin pointing at the Earth’s magnetic North. 16th Century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans.
A great gift for any nautical enthusiast the compass opens out to use and folds neatly away when not in use. A charming piece that would enhance any desk top.
