NAUTICAL BRASS COMPASS

Antiqued brass compass reproduction with a box of rosewood and small glass window.

The compass opened the world of exploration and discoveries. The first compass consisted of a container filled with water in which a magnetic needle floated suspended from a thread or threaded through a reed. The Arabs perfect it by mounting it on an axis. It arrives in Europe between the 10th and 11th centuries, allowing navigators to cross the oceans and explorers to discover the continents. The first instrument that resembles the one that currently exists is due to the Portuguese Ferrande (1483).
