This reproduction ‘1930’s Australian Penny’ Compass is skillfully handcrafted with a quality steel alloy and features the words “Life is a journey, not a destination” engraved inside the compasses screw-top lid. The navigating tool itself features a traditional style compass rose, marking four cardinal (N, E, S, W) and four ordinal (NE, SE, SW, NW) directions inside its large 60 mm ∅. The compass needle is fully-functional, eternally pointing north, thanks to the high grade, natural magnets used within. The clean, simple face is brought to life with an eye catching gemstone centering the floating needle and traditional English lettering. This essential seafarers tool merges beautifully with the slice of Australian history in which it is so lovingly enclosed.
Find your own “True North” with one of Vintage World’s authentic, reproduction, antique-style, compasses. Each of our beautiful display pieces are powerful reminders that our history is the bridge that connects our future destinations with the points from where our journeys begin. Just like Captain James Cook, the famous, 18th century English explorer would have had his eye firmly trained on the North point of his old compass, the home he would ultimately return to, as he sailed south to explore the Pacific on the HM Bark Endeavor.
A Vintage World, nautical themed, Compass is a great gift idea for travelers (of all sorts). It is also a popular gift for corporate send-offs or retirements (the compass obviously being a lasting symbol of being guided into the great unknown). All of our beautifully hand-crafted, reproduction, antique-styled and vintage-finished compasses come carefully presented in their own wooden box or embossed leather pouch. Each one is imminently collectible and shines with a polished brass alloy finish, making the perfect decorative centrepiece & slice of history to finish off any room in your house or office space, or just as a great addition to your collection of quality antique items.
