Product Description

You are looking at Cassens And Plath Vintage Lifeboat Compass. Cassens and Plath is located in Bremerhaven. Germany. The reason that this compass is so small is that it was designed to be taken on lifeboats in case of an emergency. When preparing to abandon the boat, the large binnacle with a compass can’t be deconstructed. Instead, the crew will grab a portable compass to help the lifeboat find its way to safety.

This compass is made out of solid brass.  On one side of the hood you will see where the oil and wick was stored. On the compass you will find the name Cassens & Plath right underneath the letter N. You will find on one side of the compass some stickers that will show where the company is located and the number of the compass.  The compass gimbals freely in the house.

A great item to add to your nautical  collection!
