The Compass Magnifier by Authentic Models is based on a twin-function compass and magnifying glass original from a collection of early scientific instruments. It is antique science and history captured in vintage-style aged brass with a spectucular magnification of 6x, and it would make the perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.
Exploration and Innovation
Through centuries of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the entire world. By inventing 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. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever. The magnifying glass allowed for inspection of small objects, and allowed closer study of whole new species of plants, insects and animals.
Brand New World
Can you imagine how these instruments would have originally been used - the traveller would use the compass to travel the vast world, and the expedition scientist would use the magnifier to inspect the small details.
Discover a new world in large and small size with this Compass Magnifier.
