Optician James Henry Steward founded his business that produced a large range of military equipment. Well known for precision and through work that attracted the British & Foreign Governments, the National Rifle Associations of England, India, Canada & the Colonies and the National Artillery Association. This vintage reproduction, hand made large 70 mm DIA compass is fully functional with top grade magnets. The glass face is easy to read, inner face considers period correct fonts and stone jeweled needle pointing out cardinal directions. Characteristic of the captains and their shipmates that would rely on these tools while sailing the high seas!

Find your own “True North” with one of Vintage World Australia’s authentic, antique-styled, 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, 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.

Uncommon, Unique and Priceless gift for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas.
