Brass Sextant in Wooden Case

- Style # K2446
Free Shipping*

A beautiful, intricate instrument with an interesting and ancient history.

Charming sextant as used by Victorian explorers and surveyors. Intricate and semi-functional, it has all the pieces needed to shoot the sun. Defining the angle of sun and stars with the horizon was an important way to navigate and survey. Comes with decorative wooden box.

  • Wood box.
  • Brass and glass sextant.
  • Box is 6" wide, 3 1/4" high.

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was a graduation present for my son's 2nd Masters. (Yes I'm bragging) It ties in that he is studying cartography, GPS etc. When he opened the well made wooden box and pulled out this solid brass sextant; his eyes lit up as if he'd found a large check for pizza money. The reaction from him and the quality of the product were exceptional. If this is your type of hobby. Take it from an old sailor; you'll enjoy owning this product.
