Captains Telltale Compass

$1,685.00

The tell-tale compass is designed to hang from overhead. Often used by the ships captain, it was typically hung over his bunk, so he could keep an eye on the ships heading while he was resting. This compass has a unique black paper dial which is an indicator that it dates from the first half of the 19th century. Brass fittings and compass are in perfect working order.
