Authentic Models, Polaris Compass. Long before Google Maps or GPS, explorers, merchants, artists and pilgrims, had to find their way using a newfangled invention called a Compass. Ours is a recreation of an 18th Century compass, made of solid brass with a dark blue pointer.

Travelers that did not make the next way side inn, hospital or local convent might have to camp out in the open at a time when traveling was dangerous. Losing your way was a major risk in the ages before the Renaissance. The compass offers a significant message to the recipient in a small interesting package. It is a symbol of direction, staying the course, for adventure, discovery and science as well as human inventiveness.
