The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build. Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North. 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans. This is a replica small Georgian era combination sundial and compass with brass lid to protect the convex glass cover. size: 0.9 x 2.3'', 2.2 x 5.8cm
