A high-quality display piece, this compass in its attractive wooden box makes a great addition to a nautical-themed room in your home or as decor for your boat. However, it is also an actual working compass that can be used for navigation and slope-angle measurements. The magnetic compass is constructed of solid brass and has a mirror on the inside lid. The beautiful wooden box, which houses it, is accented with brass corner brackets and features a brass anchor on the hinged lid. Fine quality and original design make our home decor collection stand above all others!
