1636131183Code 7107 Nautical compassSmall nautical compass from the early 1900s, mounted on a universal joint and placed in its original wooden box. Box size 12x12 h 8.5 cm - 4.72x4.72 h 3.34 inches. Compass diameter 7.5 cm - 2.95 inches. Excellent condition, fully functional.

The compass is made up of a cylindrical container of brass and bronze, on the bottom of which a hard metal stem is fixed, on which the compass card with eight winds is placed and complete with a goniometric circle suitably constrained, so that the zero coincides with the magnetic polarity. Excellent condition, fully functional.

The invention of the compass is mysterious but it is well known that magnetite was discovered in Magnesia, a city of Asia Minor. We can find the first indications about the use in Europe of the magnetic force for orientation at the end of the XII century because of merchants and Arab navigators.
