2093 HMS Victory Tribute Compass
A handsome reminder of our glorious naval history, this is a desk accessory to give every executive a little of the 'Nelson touch'. Cast in solid brass, it's a fully functional compass. The lid features a contemporary image of HMS Victory under full sail and there's a brief biography of the great ship engraved on the underside. Facts include her launch date - 1765, length - 227ft, and fire power - 104 guns. In addition there's a list of battle honours from Ushant (1778) to Trafalgar. Developed under licence from the National Museum of the Royal Navy, a royalty from each sale goes towards the on-going preservation of HMS Victory. Diameter 2.5".
