Stanley London Brass Sextants, from the Brass Compass
The Brass Compass is pleased to offer a large selection of antique reproduction brass sextants, as well as Tamaya fully functional calibrated sextants, sextant wall plaques, and even a brass sextant key chain.
The Stanley London® sextants are reproductions of precision turn-of-the-century sextants, and most are stamped "Stanley London," after W. F. Stanley of Stanley & Co. in London, who made precision instruments one hundred years ago.
Stanley London® sextants are solid brass with German silver scales, and are available highly polished, or with a maintenance-free antique patina.  The brass reproduction sextants are quality made and are fully functional, but are not intended for navigation.  Most of these brass sextants are offered with beautiful handmade hardwood cases, inlaid with polished brass.  These are IN STOCK in our huge Southern California warehouse and are ready to ship within hours of your order.  Custom engraving, and brass plaques are available.
