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.

The compass likely goes down as one of the most important inventions in the history of civilisation. Invented in China many thousands of years ago, compasses such as this small gold model allowed sailors to leave the sight of the coast and sail in to open waters, thanks to the rotating needle that always pointed to the magnetic north.

This reproduction of a 19th Century compass is encased in a gold-tone frame, and is the perfect size for the pocket or for attaching to a chain. 

History really comes to to life, thanks to Authentic Models.

Small Gold Compass features:
  • Designed in the USA.
  • Made from antiqued, gold-toned metal.
  • Operational compass based on a 19th Century model.
  • Features a convenient ring for attaching to a chain.
  • Presented in an Authentic Models gift box.

Diameter: 4.5cm.
