This is a Brass Skylight Binnacle Nautical Compass. The skylight binnacle has 6 equal glass sides. Compasses are usually mounted in gimbals to keep it level while the ship pitched and rolled.  They are located in a place on the ship to allow the ship’s navigator to determine position and course.

These usually have a oil chamber at the top above the compass but this one had it removed and now holds a light bulb. It has an electrical cord and as you can see from the photos it does work. The compass has seen better days, same goes for the binnacle. The binnacle is very weathered and has patina on it as well.

This Brass Skylight Binnacle Nautical Compass would look great in someone’s nautically-themed office!
