Vintage Brass

The North Star Compass by Authentic Models is antique science and history captured in admirality and vintage-style aged brass. The perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.

Brand New World

The Age of Sail allowed exploration to become possible; opening up the world for trade, travel and cultural exchange. Early navigators and explorers setting out didn't necessarily know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars of the night sky and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages  of discovery. Set sail for the fabled Spice Islands, legendary Cathay, or even the rumoured South Lands with the instrument of exploration that allowed sailers to cross vast oceans, and explorers to discover entirely new continents.

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...
