A sextant was originally used by Victorian explorers and surveyors. Intricate and semi-functional, it has all the pieces needed to shoot the sun and define latitude. Defining the angle of sun and stars with the horizon was an important way to navigate and survey. This beautiful, intricate instrument in brass and glass has an interesting and ancient history.

Specializing in an eclectic aesthetic, Authentic Models appeals to the curious and discerning. Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, Authentic Models offers a collection with the character of authenticity. Made by artisans using time-honored skills, these pieces enrich a room, and the people in it, with a profound spirit of history and nostalgia.
