Antique Science and History
The Authentic Models Small Bronze Pocket Compass is antique science and history captured in vintage-style aged bronze. It is a replica of a small pocket compass and would be the perfect gift for lovers of nautical, scientific or technological history.
Exploration and Innovation
Set sail for the fabled Spice Islands, legendary Cathay, or perhaps even the rumoured South Lands with the instrument of exploration that allowed sailers to cross vast seas, and explorers to discover new continents. Through centuries of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the entire globe. By inventing a magnetised needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North, 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could now cross oceans. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world.
Brand New World
The Age of Sail allowed exploration and commerce to become possible; opening up the world for trade, travel and cultural exchange. Early navigators and explorers setting out didn't know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars of the night sky and a compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery.
