Full Description:
Our Stanley London® antique reproduction Paperweight Compasses (or Chart Compasses) are crafted from solid brass and come with a beautiful brass-inlaid hardwood box.  Mariners would unroll their nautical charts and use these compasses on the corners to hold the charts flat.

Both our small 2 inch (5 cm) diameter and our large 3 inch (7.6 cm) diameter paperweight compasses can easily be removed from their felt lined solid hardwood cases.  The bottom of the compasses are covered with felt.  The brass compasses are solid and heavy, the small model weighing 5 ounces (142 grams) and the larger model weighing 12 ounces (340 grams).  The small hinged hardwood case is 2 1/2 inches (6.4 cm) square and 1 inch (2.5 cm) tall, and the compass with case weighs 7.4 ounces (210 grams).  The larger hinged hardwood case is 3 7/16 inches (3.7 cm) square, 1 1/8 inches (2.9 cm) tall, and the compass with case weighs 1 pound 1 ounce (482 grams).

The brass compasses can be custom engraved in arc-shaped lettering around the top of the compasses.  The hardwood cases have an inlaid brass emblem that is intended to be custom engraved with initials or a monogram.  A custom engraved brass plaque can be mounted on the top of the hardwood cases with the recipient's name, a personal message, or a company logo.
