Description
A lovely antique theodolite dating from the late 19th / early 20th Century. The Theodolite itself has a gun metal finish and is made from lacquered brass with brass fittings. It is engraved with the makers name "Troughton & Simms. London". It is a high quality instrument with an extendable telescope and a large top mounted spirit level. The instrument screws into a separate mount that could then fix to a tripod. It comes in its original fitted mahogany box which has a lovely aged patina and a working key and lock. The box is in good order and displays well. There are some signs of age and some general knocks and marks but nothing detrimental. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.

condition

The Level itself is in very good condition. The instrument and brass fittings have been lightly cleaned and the parts lubricated and it displays very nicely. The lenses are undamaged and the optics are remarkably clear with just some small specks on the lenses. The clarity and range are very good however it is not new and is really sold as a collectors item than a working scientific instrument.
