Authentic Models CO015 Gimbaled Boxed Lifeboat Compass 

The North Atlantic is an unforgiving place. Freak storms, fog banks, and severe weather make navigation a survival issue. Authentic Models fully gimbaled boxed compass is a faithful replica of a dory compass. Stacks of dories were sailed to the Great Banks and single fishermen set out with fishing lines and victuals for a day. Cod fishers used a similar compass to find their way back to the mother ship, a sailing schooner.

The solid bronze gimbaled compass sits inside an expertly hand distressed, French finished box.
