Vintage Brass

The Lodestone Compass by Authentic Models is antique science and history captured in vintage-style aged brass. It is a reproduction of an 18th century compass with a brass lid to protect its glass cover. An early travellers' compass, Lodestones were used by seafarers to keep magnets in good shape. This is the perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.

Exploration and Innovation

Set sail for the renowned Spice Islands, legendary Cathay, or even the elusive South Lands with the instrument of exploration and navigation that allowed sailers to cross vast oceans, and explorers to discover new continents. Through hundreds or years of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the globe. 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 the seven seas. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever...

Brand New World

The Age of Sail allowed exploration to become possible; opening up the world for trade, travel and cultural exchange and commerce. Early explorers setting out didn't know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars at night and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery.
