    Authentic Antique Ships Compass

    20000

    Authentic Antique Ships Compass. Would have stood on the captains deck in a housing (which we don’t have) This compass is housed in a very heavy brass casing . It is a floating compass covered in a heavy duty glass. The glass has a crack in it but compass appears to be working. This would of stood in a housing bolted to the deck and would have swiveled to it’s own level in the housing as the ship rolled over the sea’s. It’s a unique piece of Maritime history and not easy to come by. It’s not dated but research shows it probably dates from the early 1800s

The small wedding gifts such as money, gold and the wedding ring were carried in these Three Tier Baskets. Beautiful piece of History , make a cool Wedding Present.
