Sextant - WOODEN CASE - Bronze


How high the sun? How far the stars? Can the heights of love, ambition or determination be measured? This amazing piece of equipment was used by Victorian Explorers and Surveyors but today the sextant can be hand-engraved to create a meaningful keepsake to celebrate a milestone in life's journey.  A conversation piece to take pride of place on a desk, coffee table or bookshelf.

Inscribed with a crown, "Kelvin & Hughes London 1917" and presented in a beautifully finished wooden case with a glass top. Silvered scale, scope and glass filters. Antique inspired instrument’s decorative value is intended to exceed its value for practical use.

In stock and ready to send. Please order hand-engraving separately if required.
