Refurbished functional four draw 25 Power Antique Telescope. Based on the design, craftsmanship, and materials used, this spyglass was most likely built during the early 1900's in France. It measures 10" closed, 39” extended, has a 2¼” aperture (at the object end), and weighs 2½ pounds. Both the main and sun shade tubes have been line wrapped at some time in the past. The eye piece has a swivel lens protector and a object lens slide-on cap is included. This cap has had the brass collar replaced with stainless steel. Also, there is some small nicks in the front edge of the sun shade tube. A couple of the draw tubes have minor dents, but are tight and adjust smoothly. There is no obvious damage to the lenses and the view is reasonably clear. The back main tube collar has had an "F" stamped in it after the unit was assembled. Your guess is as good as mine what it indicates. This spyglass is of much better quality than most French telescopes produced during this era. The overall condition is excellent considering its advanced age. Additional Nautical Items Available - Please Call Cliff @ 760-942-2025 For More Information.
