Vintage Nautical Lifeboat Compass

This is a Vintage Brass Daiko Lifeboat Compass with an oil burner. This compass is so small because it was designed to be taken on lifeboats in case of an emergency. When preparing to abandon the boat, the large binnacle with compass can’t be deconstructed. Instead, the crew will grab a portable compass to help the lifeboat find it’s way to safety. This is a salvaged nautical antique that you can tell a story about to your visitors.

It has a Japanese Daiko compass inside that is in working condition. The compass itself gimbals freely inside the housing. On the compass itself, markings read “Daiko” and “MADE IN JAPAN”.  The brass housing has some light dings here and there but is in overall good condition.

It measures 9 inches tall and 9.25 at its widest point.  The base is 9 inches in diameter. The oil burner has an oil reservoir with wick intact inside, its housing measures about 2.75 inches by 3.25 inches by 5.5 inches.  The glass window measures just under 5 inches in diameter.  It weighs 6.1 pounds.

You will be shipped the vintage brass Daiko lifeboat compass with oil burner shown in the photos.
