Hearkening back to the golden age of discovery and European colonialism, this lovely antique instrument replica set is a perfect way to liven any space in your home or office with a bit of 18th century charm. It includes three common implements used in the 1700s for navigation and various burgeoning science disciplines - a delicately marked brass marine compass, a leather wrapped telescoping spyglass and a small wood handled magnifying glass. Each item is housed in a handsome felt lined wooden box that beautifully complements the iconic historical artifacts inside. The box is 6 3/8" long x 3 3/8" wide x 2 5/8" high and looks great on a bookshelf, side table, desk, mantle, curio case or practically anywhere else. This elegant set also makes a fantastic gift for history buffs, collectors of antique navigational aids and anyone who enjoys fine vintage style decor. Bring the days of wooden ships, silk sails and blossoming navigational technology home with you today!
