CO017 Collector´s Compass

CO017 Collector´s Compass 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. This ‘Collector’s’ compass was originally created for the scientific instrument collection of King George IV. Its elegant design features gimbal-rings, which serve to keep the compass bowl horizontal, regardless of how much the vessel is heeling over. Hand-tooled in admiralty brass. M. 4.25 x 5.5 x 7.75" M. 10.5 x 14 x 19.5cm,

CO012 18th C. Sundial & C

CO012 18th C. Sundial & Compass Not that long ago people actually lived by sundial time. Every village and town functioned on local time, depending on local latitude. The arrival of trains and mail coach traffic created a need for coordinated time. Our travel sundial needs a compass to find north. Raising the triangular gnomon upright while pointing the compass needle North will show the time. The correct time will show only if the local latitude correspondes to angle of gnomon. Bronze dry compass, hand colored reproduction compass cards. Hand aged and hand polished. Ø. 1 x 3.3´´ M. 8.5 x 8.5 x 2.5cm,

CO014 WWII Compass

CO014 WWII Compass The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build. Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth’s magnetic North. 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans. Sailors now devised a compass course, while still using their age-old knowledge of steering by fixed stars, ocean currents and prevailing winds to establish position. Ø. 0.8 x 2.2´´ Ø 2 x 5.5cm,
