Small Bronze Compass
This fully functional compass is a historic reproduction and, with a 1.75 inch diameter, is the perfect size to fit in your pocket or the palm of your hand.
Tools such as sextants, chronometers, compasses, and maps have historically helped sailors explore the world and open new avenues for trade and prosperity. As a prominent colonial port city, Newport was home to many seafarers who used such tools to find their way home. This compass will reliably point north and help you find your way, wherever you go.
