Vintage Brass LIETZ CO Binnacle Ships Compass Nautical Decor WWII Era

THE A. LIETZ CO. Binnacle Compass



This beautiful brass compass would make for an exceptional piece of nautical decor.


This compass is in excellent aesthetic condition, but is not in working order.

This compass has a clear glass, indicating that it was most likely used on the bridge of the ship.

The compass rose features a Fleur de Lis at North.

The compass appears to be all copper except for the top rim.

On the bottom of the compass is a frosted glass. It could be lit up for display simply by placing a light underneath.

The compass measures 5.25"H x 10.75" in diameter. The glass measures 9" in diameter. The base 7".

It weighs 23 pounds.
