We offer this beautiful Stanley London® solid brass reproduction of a large antique pocket compass. The antique patina compass looks just like a 100-year-old antique. The antique finish needs no maintenance and can be handled without fingerprints discoloring the brass. The compass is 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, 11/16 inch (1.75 cm) thick, and weighs 8.4 ounces (238 grams). There is a small lever on the side of each compass that operates a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass bearing. The compass rose is graduated in degrees and has a standard surveyor's 0 - 90 degree scale from North and South. This compass can be custom engraved either directly on the inside of the lid or on the back of the compass with your personalized inscription.
We offer three solid brass pocket compass chains, each measuring 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall and weighing 1.1 ounces (31 grams), as matching options for your compass. The chains are specially made to be non-magnetic and will not effect the accuracy of your compass. The chains have a clasp on one end that attaches to the fob on the pocket compass and the other end can be attached to your pocket, belt, or button hole. Additionally, an optional "Stanley London" embossed leather carrying case with rear belt loop can be purchased.
An optional hardwood case that features a handsome inlaid compass rose is available for storage and display as well. Each compass rose is unique and will have slight variations since they will be inlaid using similar hand tools to those used 200 years ago. The Large Hardwood Case with Hand Inlaid Compass Rose is 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm) tall with the lid closed, 4 inches (10.2 cm) square, and weighs 7.5 ounces (213 grams). This case can be ordered with a custom solid brass plaque to be mounted on the front and/or inside lid of the box.
