Forget about GPS when you can find your way with this fascinating pre-war reproduction sextant. A great ornament for a grand desk or drawing room. It makes a fabulous gift for marine enthusiasts and collectors of shipping memorabilia.
A Sextant measures the angles between a-celestial object and the horizon. It was a must for sailors in the late 19th century. This is a working sextant but is primarily designed to be an ornament. Comes complete with a vintage wooden box detailed with an etched brass plate.
