Brass Sextant in Case


Charming sextant as used by Victorian explorers and surveyors. Intricate and semi-functional, it has all the pieces needed to shoot the sun. A sextant defined latitude. A clock longitude. Defining the angle of Sun and Stars with the horizon was an important way to navigate and survey. A beautiful, intricate instrument with an interesting and ancient history.

M. 5.9 x 5.9 x 3.1''
