I needed to hang something in the den above the fireplace, and needed some red to warm the room. This compass rose in the large size is perfect. The red is not too much since the figure itself has open work in it , with the viewer being able to see the wall's surface also. It has the right amount of oxidation to mimic an antique and as someone else said ," holds its own" above the fireplace. In my case I , it goes well with my relative's interest in flying. It is perfect . If you need something to fill in the space in an area above a mantel , buy this .You won't need anything else ! It was packed well and was in perfect shape , and I knew that if there were a shipping problem , which there was not, that LL Bean can be trusted to take good care of the customer.

Purchased the Mineral Grey color in the Large size. Hung this on the side of my house in a protected spot under my front porch overhang. Looks gorgeous! Was concerned that the "rustic" elements would be a rusty orange/brown color but was happily surprised to see that the "aged" areas are a silvery finish! Very happy with purchase! Looks as great close up as it does from a distance!

We own this compass in the larger size and have it hanging on the side of our shed. We put this one on the front of our house. Reminds me of the metal stars people put on their homes but this is a fun change.

My dad was an avid hunter. He taught us about compasses when we were young. This is a great piece to remind me of a great man!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Griff1 Just the right size to fill the space!
The 41" compass fits perfectly in the triangular area above my sunroom doorway. The first one I got was a little bent; the replacement sent sits more flush to the wall. Your customer service is awesome-they sent the replacement immediately! They did vary in the amount of oxidation/antiquing, so just be aware that the one you receive may not look exactly like the one in the picture.

We have a large fireplace with large wood mantle and needed something that could "hold its own" and not get "lost" under our high beam ceiling. The mineral color metal is very organic, and blends with the rock and cement of the fireplace as well as being perfect against the wood wall and mantle. Couldn't be happier!

Love it! It's BIG but that's why I purchased it. It's also very lightweight so it's easy to hang without molly bolts. I chose the brick red color and it has a weathered or distressed look. Just make sure you measure the area where you want to hang it up. I'm putting mine indoors but it could easily be used outside also.

The silver compass rose looks perfect above our bed - it is just what we hoped for: rustic and simple, but still a commanding focal point for the room.
