WW2 Brass Nautical Compass by C G Conn
WW2 memorabilia nautical compass made for the US Navy Bureau of Ships by C G Conn, ltd. Pressed into service by the government during World War II, the band instrument factory completely retooled in order to manufacture compasses, altimeters, gyro-horizon indicators, and other related items for the war effort.
This is a mark 1 nautical compass for a 3-5" domehead binnacle. This would make a great addition to any nautical collection or ww2 memorabilia military collection. equally it would be fabulous for a nautical decor restaurant or any maritime location.
The nautical compass measures 9" in diameter (18" with correcting spheres) by 6" tall and weighs almost 21lbs.
In good condition but there is are some chips on the edges of the spectacles - please see all pictures as they form part of the description
All our items are vintage/antiques and most have had decades of use. A buyer of vintage objects should assume a baseline of wear. I am always honest and clear in my descriptions and always endeavor to point out any flaws to avoid disappointment but I cannot disclose every minute sign of use on our items as it would be impossible to do so. You should assume these are present unless we specify otherwise here at the beginning of the condition report.
Please do not hesitate to request additional photographs should you wish to inspect the item in more detail before purchasing it or if you have any questions at all that are not answered in my description. I normally respond to enquiries very quickly.
