This Rare Vintage Hezzanith Mark VII Binnacle with Compass is indeed a unique item. It took us hours of scouring the internet to find information on this brand of binnacles. Originally created by the Heath & Co. company in England, this brand of navigational equipment was borne and items were produced for the war effort around 1937. Eventually, this company was bought or merged into, Scientific Instruments and then eventually William Stanley.
There appears to be a plate missing on the front and is displayed in the photos.
