This is quite a fine English wood barrel telescope. A single full draw telescope with engraved focal tube by Blakeney & Co of Hull and Sunderland. Also inscribed Day and Night indicating use in all light conditions. Rosewood barrel with minor splitting----polished and very attractive. I believe this piece is functional and ready for your use. Set upon tripod style legs which are retractable for traveling. With brass focal tube and shutter. 31inches open x 21 inches long. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Those of you who have purchased from me before know that I am very picky about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. However, please check the photos carefully---as they say `a picture is worth a thousand words' We will help arrange shipping for you; our experience with large or small has been excellent. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable. Please email us before you buy if you would like to discuss layaway terms. We have been in business over 30 years and our reputation is without flaw.
