The small boxed compass is a handsome reproduction of an antique brass gimbaled compass. It comes in a beautiful hardwood box with glass top & hardwood splines. The 2 3/4-inch (7 cm) diameter compass is fully gimbaled with a solid brass gimbal set. The lid of the hardwood case is inset with beveled glass so the compass can be viewed with the lid closed, making this a beautiful addition to a nautical collection or executive's desk. The gimbaled compass is protected by a second glass cover. The hardwood case is 4 5/8 inches (11.7 cm) square and 3 1/4 inches (8.9 cm) tall, and the compass weighs 1 3/4 pounds (800 grams).
