Description
A lovely antique library telescope on its original folding tripod. It was made by E.G.Wood of London and dates to the late 1800s. The telescope is made of lacquered brass and has a single large tube with an extendable eyepiece which focuses the telescope using the rack and pinion knob on the side. The telescope also comes with an additional lens and eyepiece. The telescope sits atop a short folding brass tripod. Two screws below the telescope fix it onto the stand. The stand allows the telescope to swivel completely around and move up and down. Both the telescope and stand are in good original condition and display well - a real statement piece. The telescope is not in perfect condition but there are no major damages. It has suffered some minor dinks, dents and small knocks and scratches to the tube and the lacquer has tarnished and worn in places. The lenses are undamaged and produce a clear and crisp image with a good range. Please bare in mind the telescope is 100 years old and the lenses will not be like new. There are some small specks of dirt on the lenses but it is perfectly usable. The telescope comes with its original fitted pine box which has a retailer's label for "Clarkson's Optical Stores. 838 High Holborn, London, W.C". There are some signs of age and use around the box - some old splits, knocks and mark but overall it displays well. Approximate Measurements : Length of Telescope : 44 1/2" (113cm) Height on Stand : 21" (53cm) Diameter of Stand : 16" (41cm) Box : 40" (102cm) x 9 1/2" (24cm) x 5 1/2" (14cm) The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.
