This nostalgic kit conjures images of a three-year-long whaling journeys to see the watery part of the world. And in that world, the three items in this set – an hour-glass timer, navigator’s compass, and telescope – held great symbolic importance. For our contemporary concerns, the 3-minutes on the 4½" tall timer make it great for brewing tea, and the telescope is useful for patio bird watching. The set comes in a Beechwood presentation and display box with two latches and a glass top. All three tools are Brass; the hefty telescope is bound in beautiful leather with Brass moving parts. The compass is 1½" diameter.
