Nautical Brass Compasses and Telescopes

Madison Bay Company was founded in 1976 by John Leib as a part-time business while he was teaching high school. He had been collecting historical photographs and his archive grew quickly from five civil war photos to over 15,000 historical images. In 1990 his son Troy joined him in the business, which has expanded to include historical reproductions of Colonial, Civil War, Indian, Western and Nautical items.

Compasses ($14.95 to $34.95) and Boxed Sets ($32.95 to $75.95)

This 14" Telescope ($85.95) fits perfectly into the Brass & Wood Box ($25.95)
At Vintages we have an excellent selection of Madison Bay Company's brass compasses and telescopes. These are perfect gifts for the nautical enthusiast, geographer, cartographer or world traveler. Any desk or bookshelf would look terrific with one of these displayed. But they are more than just for display, as the optics on the telescopes are excellent and the compasses are accurate. Check our selection online or in the shop.
