A good 19th century, three-draw brass and leather terrestrial pocket telescope c1880. Main barrel covered in its original stitched leather cover. Flared eyecup with swivel dust slide within the eyepiece. Three brass draw tubes, with 1-inch diameter objective lens and removable brass end cap. Optics are in good undamaged condition, focusing easily to produce a clear sharp image. A period antique pocket telescope, as good to use today as it was over a hundred years ago. The telescope measures 15 cm when closed and 41 cm extended.
This pocket telescope is in excellent working condition and cosmetic condition commensurate with age. The three brass draw tubes have a firm draw action with no dings or dents. Stitched leather cover in very good condition with unbroken stitching and minimal signs of age. Lovely aged patina throughout. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
