This Binnacle brass ship's compass is over 165 years old and is so cleverly designed.
A self stabalising mechanism, or gimble, allows this compass to be read no matter how high the waves! It has viewing window to allow the crew to read the compass with out risking it being damaged by the crashing waves, and it's own oil lamp that allowed the compass to be read after dark!
Just imagine the journeys it has been on!
A beautiful piece to add to your home, bar or man cave. Or the perfect piece to gift to that maritime obsessed loved one.
measures approx 26cm x 20cm
