"AUTHENTIC MODELS ART C015 COMPASS"
The North Atlantic is an unforgiving place. Crazy storms, fog banks and harsh weather conditions make navigation a survival problem. This compass is a completely faithful replica of a dory compass. Piles of dories were sailed to the Grand Banks and individual fishermen set out with lines and a day's supplies. Cod fishermen used a similar compass to find their way back to their mother ship, a sailing schooner. The solid bronze gimbal is housed in a French finished box, expertly hand treated.
