This fully gimbaled, boxed compass is a faithful replica of the original dory compass. At one point, stacks of dories were sailed to the Great Banks and single fishermen set out with fishing lines and victuals for a day; cod fishers used a similar compass to find their way back to the mother ship, a sailing schooner. This solid bronze gimbaled compass sits inside an expertly hand-distressed, French-finished box.

Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, and with a commitment to quality and intrigue, 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.
