Full Description:
We are proud to offer this handsome hand inlaid rosewood desk compass.  The top of this rosewood desk compass is embellished with a beautiful inlaid compass rose.  This inlaid compass rose is made from four different species of beautiful exotic hardwoods.  Hand inlaying hardwood is an old time-honored art that requires considerable talent, patience, and precision from a highly trained artisan to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece.  The inlayer must chisel out the surface of the wood in the shape of the design that will be inlaid, and then hand cut each individual piece of thin wood and precisely fit it into the hollowed out section.  As each compass rose is inlaid into the hardwood box using similar hand tools to those used 200 years ago, each compass is unique and will have slight variations.

The Rosewood Desk Compass with Hand Inlaid Hardwood Compass Rose is 3 inches (7.6 cm) square, 1 1/4 inches (3.2 cm) tall, and weighs 5.9 ounces (168 grams).  Its hinged lid opens to reveal a 2 1/8 inch (5.4 cm) diameter beautiful polished solid brass compass.  This compass can be ordered with a custom solid brass plaque to be mounted on the inside lid of the box.
