Find your own “True North” with one of Vintage World’s authentic, 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 Endeavour.
