Victorian Telescope – 36 inch two draw – mahogany cased – c1880

Short Description

This beautiful two draw telescope is English by origin and made in the Victorian era c1880.

It is in superb condition. Fully extended it is near 36 inches – closed about 16 inches. The 1.5 inch objective is clear and has good light gathering qualities – no chips. The mahogany casing is intact which is rare as they generally split with age. The eyepiece has a pull down dust cover as is usual for the period.

The brass objective has a dust cover fitted into a substantial extendable lens shade which slides well … all in very good condition. An instrument of this quality must have come from a leading London maker and the style suggests Dollond.

Good optics and fine mahogany banding making a handsome early telescope

Best one we have had for a long time!

Price: $590.00
