A beautiful gift boxed Bronze reproduction of a charming pocket sextant as used by Victorian explorers and surveyors. Intricate and semi-functional, it has all the pieces needed to shoot the sun. A sextant defined latitude. A clock longitude. Defining the angle of Sun and Stars with the horizon was an important way to navigate and survey. A beautiful intricate little instrument with an interesting and ancient history. This bronze sextant measures 4" from top to bottom, 4" wide at the widest point and sits on bronze legs. On the underside there is a bronze handle (not visible in picture), that is 1¾" long to make handling easier. This sextant will enhance the Nautical decor anywhere in your home, cabin or office.
