FINDING YOUR WAY

vintage antique star Pathfinder compass #56350. It is all solid bronze brass and heavy 6″ wide and works great.

The magnetic compass was first invented as a device for divination early as the Chinese Han Dynasty (since about 206 BC), and usage recorded in Western Europe between 1187 and 1202. A rudimentary working model of a liquid compass was introduced by Sir Edmund Halley at a meeting of the Royal Society in 1690.
