Gimballed Compass on Stand

Gimballed to allow the compass to remain horizontal while the base shifts, this compass became a very useful tool for navigation on the seas. Great gift for the seafarer historian or collector.

Its origin was from ancient China. Considered an instrument of magic by many, it was used primarily for Feng Shui purposes. Taken to the West it introduced open-sea navigation. Sailing vessels no longer needed to hug the coast.

Gimballed compass, solid brass with antique bronze finish.

4 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 7 3/4"
Ships to the continental US only
