navigators compass box

Navigator's box with built-in compass on the lid. This brass box has bronze finish. The silver plated compass dial adds luxurious contrast to this box.

The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build.

Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North. 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans.
