Antique Compass (reproduction).
The North Atlantic is an unforgiving place.
Freak storms, fog banks, and severe weather make navigation a survival issue.
Our fully gimbaled boxed antique compass is a faithful replica of a dory compass.
Stacks of dories were sailed to the Great Banks and single fishermen set out with fishing lines and victuals for a day. Cod fishers used a similar compass to find their way back to the mother ship, a sailing schooner.
The solid bronze gimbaled compass sits inside an expertly hand distressed, wooden box.
The wood has a french finishing (repetitive manual polishing with very soft pads) who gives him a brilliant aspect, deep colors and a very soft touch.
Attention to detail, historical interest, authentic materials characterize this very fine antique compass made by AM, world-renowned for its museum quality reproductions.
