Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosefool Smaller than advertised
I just received this, and I'm a little disappointed. First of all, it's barely 38.5" in diameter. The website says 41", and not even "about " 41". Almost 3 additional inches of diameter would make this have a significantly larger visual impact.
Second, it has a VERY distressed finish, with active rust showing at several points, and quite a bit of chipped and missing paint. The description does say it's antiqued, and distressed, so I guess imy own interpretation of that differs: I did not expect to see rust.
Overall, I still like it, and will keep it, so I'm giving it 4 stars. I just don't feel like I got full value for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OhioLLBgirl Wonderfully shabby chic
I have loved this piece since the first time I saw it. Never had a place to put it, but finally found a perfect spot in our new house!
This rustic red compass rose goes perfectly over the bed in the master bedroom which is decorated in a nautical theme with reds, blues and off whites. It is very large so it makes a statement! I love this. My only very minor complaint was it was a bit more "rustic" than it looked in the catalog/online, but once on the wall it was perfect!!

This piece is perfect for our outdoor living space. We've been looking for just the right wallhanging for a few years and this fits the bill. It's surprisingly lightweight, so putting it up it was a breeze! Love it!

Love this piece! The color is a deep, brick red and has an aged look-perfect for the room we had in mind. Pictures in catalog and online were accurate. The item shipped and arrived much quicker than anticipated.

At first I thought this would be too large for the outside of our ranch style house. But it is perfect. We love to travel in our RV and this reminds me of those wonderful trips every time I come home. Its weather worn appearance just adds to its charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeroSue911 Better than described!
Perfect for the high pointed peak of the wall of the living area of our home. Had been thinking for months that a dark red compass rose would be perfect over the entertainment center which has a large ship model sitting on top of it. Have a nautical theme in my home, not Floridian, nor Cape Cod, and this is just what I'd been thinking of...no, even BETTER! Catalog said shipping by September, and it just arrived in July within two weeks of ordering. It's all good! Thanks, LLBean!!!!

Purchased compass for my coastal home and could not be more pleased! It is very well made in a deep cottage red with just the right amount of patina added. I hung it at the up outside under and overhang at the gable end of the house, it looks great and makes quite a statement. I am already getting complements from neighbors who seemed convinced this was a vintage find! It came well packed and has a nice hang ring hidden at the top for an easy install.
