Bronze Sextant This elegantly antique solid brass sextant makes a distinctive gift. A great replica from the 18th century, it has functioning parts and reminds of those often used by Victorian explorers and surveyors. Being small in size, its use as a fully working instrument is limited but it makes a great gift, decoration item as well as demonstrational piece. It has a built-in magnifier that can be swung into position to assist in reading the vernier scale. As a semi-functional instrument you are able to adjust the controls to determine the angle of a celestial object and horizon by viewing them simultaneously. Size:- Approx 9.5cm - L x 9.5cm - W x 6.5cm - H (Sextant). A free brass keyring is sent along as a gift.
