Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.
That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that don’t break from tradition.
Long before the invention of GPS navigation, sailors, pirates, explorers and your everyday adventurers would have been (quite literally) lost without a compass. This was a device that opened the world up to discovery more than any other.
This special 18th Century Sundial Compass from Authentic Models looks so ancient and rustic, you can't help but feel that it has been along for some amazing adventures to the far flung corners of the Earth. Now it's here to accompany you on your own adventures, and when you're retired and living in your stately old manor, you can place it on your mantle as a restless reminder of all that is yet to be discovered...
18th Century Sundial Compass features:
- Designed in the USA.
- Made from brass and glass.
- Hand aged and hand polished in a rustic antique duo tone.
- Raising the gnomon upright while pointing the compass needle North will show the time (the correct time will show only if the local latitude corresponds to the angle of the gnomon).
- Presented in an Authentic Models box.
