Ruggedly handsome, the round brass sundial and compass accessory is a piece of history that has been indespensable to pirates, sea captains and travelers for centuries.

Nestled on the corner of a desk, the compass and sundial accessory is a piece of navagation history that's still used today. If the appeal of modern technology has faded and your feet are itching for adventure then bring along this conversation piece to help guide your way around the world. Using real brass and glass to fashion a fully functional round shaped compass and sundial, this accessory comes with the option to choose which color of leather mat you would like to compliment this nautical décor piece. Choose any of the five leather options and a finished mat cut in the shape of a shield will be made in that leather choice and included with the brass nautical accessory.

Compasses and sundials have a long history. Over the centuries the compass has gradually been refined, taking the form of a magnetized needle pivoted on a pin and added on top of a circular direction-marked chart featuring a 32 point compass rose. Sundials were immensely useful until the new invention of the electric telegraph which was able to transmit the correct time anywhere, and as a result sundials fell out of favor in the 19th century.^ The weight of these two instruments that have such an invaluable place in navigation history is palatable, and combining them makes this functional nautical accessory an intriguing statement piece that's inspired by those who were insatiable in their curiosity and intense wonder of the world.

The style of the past comes to life once more with this piece of alternative, functional style to use to guide your way. If you're a traveler, a sailor or just looking for an interesting piece to gift for a wedding or recent graduate, consider the practical gift of a compass sundial nestled comfortably on a custom leather presentation mat as the piece to give to compliment the heart of an explorer.
