Sextant in Etched Glass Top Mahogany Box - 8"
This is a great
model of the
'real' thing. A finely hand machined and highly
polished solid brass
sextant in a brass inlaid mahogany box with a beveled glass
The etchings on the top explain the use of a sextant in a
decorative fashion. A great educational instrument and an
excellent gift piece all in one.
The sextant has all the working parts and
mirrors with what appears to be a precision scale to take fairly accurate
global measurements. But this sextant should not be
considered a real accurate instrument.
