A beautiful Bronze reproduction of a charming pocket sextant in a wooden case with a glass top as would have been 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. The measurements are 6" x 6" x 3¼". This sextant will enhance the Nautical decor anywhere in your home, office or cabin and makes a wonderful nautical gift.
