It's a nice piece but I was a bit frustrated by the location of the mounting ring. As you can see from the picture, absolutely no thought was put into hiding the method by which you hand the item on the wall. Not only is it a big, obnoxious ring that advertises it's function and your nail, but the manufacturer even made sure to center it in the "N" to maximize it's visibility to your guests and observers. It's almost as if they went out of their way to make it so blatant.

Excellent item, sturdy and looks great ! Large enough to be appreciated and looks old in it's appearance as it should be.
I am about to build another gated area and will likely purchase another to put on the new gate as I have with the first one purchased! We love it!

I bought this to go on my shed that has a nautical theme. The weathered look is perfect, and it is so lightweight I could hang it by myself. This was backordered for a few months, but was well worth the wait.

I love my silver 24" Compass Rose.
It looks wonderful. The only thing that I was disappointed with was that the hanger loop was attached at a slight angle, if it was straight it would have been easier to hang. It is light weight but quite sturdy.
The color is a weathered silver with random bright spots that are very attractive. It would fit in with many different kinds of decorating styles.

Our son has traveled the world with the U.S Navy and still does as a government defense contractor. It was an appropriate gift for him and his wife's anniversary.

This is such a lovely piece. I purchased the gray and it looks like a weathered antique. So glad I purchased.

If you love the water, you will love this accent piece for your home. A beautiful piece of artwork - Well made and substantial... Nicely "weathered" looking!

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.
