Stanley London® Brass Paperweight
Compasses and Hardwood Boxes
Our Stanley London® antique reproduction Paperweight Compasses (or Chart Compass) are crafted from solid brass and most come with beautiful brass-inlaid hardwood boxes.
Mariners would unroll their nautical charts and use these compasses on the corners to hold the charts flat.
