Vintage Polished Brass Kompas Gimbal Compass

£275.00 (inc VAT)

Vintage salvaged nautical gimbal compass, stripped of its original paint scheme and beautifully polished.

The compass itself has a thick copper casing (see image) and the gimbal mechanism keeps the face stabilised.

The manufacturer’s name is on the compass face – Kompas Rijeka Jugoslavia – so this was made by the Kompas company based in Rijeka in the former Yugoslavia.

Originally illuminated by candle flame – charring can still be seen inside the unstripped light housing (see image).

Colour inside the housing suggests this compass was originally painted cream, to protect against the elements.

Dimensions: tbc.
