The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Today the tool that allowed 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines to suddenly cross oceans is still a basic instrument, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth’s magnetic North. This replica of a small Georgian-era combination sundial and compass features a brass lid to protect the convex glass cover.
